Painting: Oil on Paper.
This piece is part of an ongoing body of work titled "Bread Encounters". When I observe bread closely and let my imagination run wild I see more than a familiar object, the loaf transfigures into fragments of bodies, expanding terrains, astral or microscopic entities, and cherished cultural relics. Through a deliberate use of composition, texture, and color selection, I attempt to simultaneously convey both a rigorously realistic rendition of the loaf, and my imaginary interpretation of the performative role I envision it plays.
The piece includes a USB with a video file of the entire painting process. Shortened version can be found here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BwZvNJFgEVh/
