Introspection
Acrylic on canvas

I developed this idea of using a room as a metaphor for the human mind, as an opportunity to discuss the hurdles that I faced as a 16-year old student.

 

I was able to find catharsis in the drafting of this composition. I channelled myself into this current layout - no pretence, 100% me. The idea was to let the viewer gain access into your internal landscape, something so personal and hard to express in words, via the setup of a room.

 

Drawing inspiration from my artist references and my experiences, I was able to finally create this layout. It accurately captures this distinctive intimacy and emotion within the work, something my other compositions were not able to.
