Finding Solace in Remote Sands
The body of work explores the feeling of solitude within oneself to find inner peace. Whether one needs to reflect on life and the current events happening, one would isolate themselves into a private place within their home. Linking the desert and the home space resembles the personal isolation and privacy one may look for as a sort of escape from the world. However positive or negative it may be, this is at a point where the individual is seen alone, interacting with their surroundings, reflecting on their personal self. Throughout the series of paintings, each artwork depicts a lonesome figure in a desolate setting, whether it is the room in a state of disrepair, having a moment of self-reflection and fleeting feeling. Achieving the surreal sensibility in the works, the background and setting is done with moving brushstrokes to create this dreamlike imagery. With this body of work, it is seen as an escape from modern reality and sometimes one needs isolation to reflect on life, and to just find inner peace within them.
