My visual language addresses the struggles between humans and the world from the macro to the micro level. The effects of these struggles, resulting from the mostly unchanged modus operandi of humans towards its surroundings, and its mode of operation are exposed and critiqued through realism. Given the long tradition of realism and its slow evolution in art, its stylistic appropriation as a metaphor for the way humans have operated towards its environment would be the most appropriate platform for my discourse. However the language of traditional Realism is not totally sufficient for commentaries on contemporary struggles which humans face throughout time. To address this insufficiency, palpable adaptations have been made.
The most discernable evolution is the showers of slashes and cuts on the subject and its space as they confront each other. At times some superficial wounds heal, but are still visible under the surface as a reminder of past transgressions; others become more aggressive transforming into fissures that never heal. As wounds, the red lines also form the arsenals from which the subject intrudes into the space of its environment. Correspondingly without relenting to the assault from the subject with its red lines, the environment launches colorful lines of responses. Interception occurs, at times, when the lines intersect each other. Where the subject meets the space it forms the frontlines. Here the contours are mostly dissolved by the intense clash. This cycle of attacks and counter-attack continues with disregard to time and space.
