A Salient Symphony of the Unseen

Admits the pandemic’s quietude, when our sense of aliveness and embodiment seemed distant without genuine connections, I turned to watercolours on paper. Entranced by the transformative power of colour, I sought to capture the subtle, hidden elements of our world, those often overlooked. Through my art I gave voice to the silent emotions and thoughts within bridging the gap left by the absence of visible social bonds. This technique, born of fluidity within structure, was both deliberate and intuitive, offering solace in our shared human experience.

Through abstract forms she examines her personal identity and explores defects in human nature.

Compiling abstract records of emotions is crucial for documenting and preserving past experiences and coping mechanisms. Emotions are shaped by childhood experiences and interconnected by past situations. In this painting series, I used layering techniques with transparent gesso to capture the complexity of emotions, physically reflecting their interconnectedness.

My art practice starts with a conflict experience and focuses on exploring the flaws of individual identity and human nature. Here, conflicts can be the moment I feel a lack of emotion such as love or anger, the moment when your values with others do not match. I shifted my focus to everyday, abstract paintings and used symbolic forms to capture emotions at certain moments to induce self-reflection. Maintaining emotions is important to me, it references them later and makes me remember how I handled them. Our emotions and behaviors are all connected and rooted in situations that we have learned and become familiar with since childhood. Layering techniques are physically consistent with the belief that emotions are connected and influenced by past experiences.

We are all born into the world and go through the continuous process of self-development, and each experience is based on previous experiences. Using this concept, I create a self-documenting task, capturing the complexity of emotions and the association with past experiences.
