Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil on Paper.

In this piece, I wanted to play on the idea of concealing and revealing (with the transparency and opacity of different areas of the painting) and continue to erase the frontiers between the seen and the unseen.

 During the making of that work, i was also thinking of the nature of memory, how some stick forever, how some slide off our consciousness and seem to disappear, how our memories make who we are, how our past however forgotten still has a hold on us, on our present and future.
The more I painted, the more the divider seem to represent the self or consciousness. The heaps of fabric and netting, our past and the faraway door the future. How we are ineluctably facing the future with the luggages, remnants, flotsam and jetsam of the past.
I chose the a blue, purple and green palette because of the influence of a recent trip to South Africa where the colours of nature are always so much brighter than in our grey cities. I also have been thinking of Japan after reading Kafka on the shore by Murakami, and the dark blue and purple are reminiscent of Japanese fabric and are also the colours of my memories of a trip to that country a few years ago.
