Painting: Acrylic on Paper.
Within this work I was interested in a battle of fragmentation and cohesion. Through the visual chaos four figures eventually emerge in various states of de-construction or re-configuration. They establish an ambiguous interaction with one another. They meld and intersect through op-art like patterning that possibly repels as much as it yearns to unify.
Amongst the layerings and cut aways I've embedded fragments of information that could lead to a variety of narratives. To me these clues ground what longs to sink into abstraction and perhaps enables our own non-sensical reality to come crashing back in.
