To be boldened in the Blues and Purples
This Body of work explores the idea of apocalypse and a dark age. However, instead of fearing this time, the figures embrace with the storm which has come, somehow knowing intuitively that a time of spring will be born after. The Blues and Purples, relate to the time we are living in; This blue phase that seems to come and go. The ups and downs of our history. The idea of darkness and light. I was inspired by the colors that seemed to permeate my psyche lately. I became attracted to these more somber tones and notes, eventually finding the hidden vibrancy that lies within them. I gave myself a limited palette to work with, which in a wierd way granted more freedom to explore another range of hues. The figures are often shown more lay-den in shadow, the highlights become pink, purple, and blue. I began to see more within the skin and form of the body. The figures are not always grounded in the landscape and seem to be rooten more in the dreamed space. I wanted the figures to be transporting, aloof and airy, shocasing their impermanence.
