My artworks relate to intuitive thought, emptiness and cognitive awareness: the feeling that time has stopped, or of an alternate dreamlike universe. “Paired Existence” series embodies a combination of expressionistic painting and photographic realism.
The paint stroke technique emits a connective movement derived from the unconscious while the self-portrait image-transfers emits a mirrored juxtaposition between the unknown and reality. The wood plank canvas is a symbol of strength and physical existence amongst nature. The vivid color waves are distortedly surrounding the portrait figures conveying an intertwined twinship energy between space and time.
