Dark Matter II, 2019 by P. Wamaitha Ng’ang’a, Mixed Media: Photograph: Mixed media-Digital image on Paper, 18 x 18 in. (45.7 x 45.7 cm)
My scoliosis and Poland Syndrome conditions led to a negative and distorted body image of myself. I’m on a quest to understand the effect of deformities on body image whilst advocating for body positivity – the acceptance of all bodies regardless of physical ability, size, gender, race, or appearance.
P. Wamaitha Ng’ang’a (born 1982) is a Kenyan-British visual artist and photographer based in London, England. Using mixed media and photography, Wamaitha creates works that confront contemporary issues on women and children rights, social, political and environmental issues and cultural identity. She also works with self-portraiture in the realm of art therapy and symbolism communication, exploring the interconnections of nature, spirituality and healing. This process is a personal catharsis and reconciliation of the physical and psychological journey as she deals with her health. She studied Photography (First class BA Hons) and Media, Campaigning and Social Change (MA) at the University of Westminster, England.
