title: "Self in Contemplation"

medium: Acrylic and Crackle Medium on Masonite board.

size: 48"x36" (4ft x 3ft)

In this work, I explore the complexity of Self through the contemplation of what is seen and what lies beneath. Depicting dualities of the tangible and abstract, of strength and fragility, and the presence in absence.

Reflecting on the beauty of imperfection, be it in the contours of an expression or in the colorful chaos that surrounds an introspective mind.

Using a jigsaw I cut away from the idea of a concrete self and use the negative space left behind to replace it with a more honest portrait. Instead of portraying a person that is whole, I acknowledge the certainty that we can never truly obtain a full understanding of a person in their entirety.
