My Figures series of paintings takes a fresh look at the traditional portrayal of the human image, challenging the very concept of what it means to capture and preserve our physical likeness through art. Throughout history, people have sought to immortalize themselves in paintings, sculptures, and other forms of art, creating lasting impressions of their worth and significance.
While this fascination with creating images of ourselves goes back to the dawn of civilization, in the modern era, it has become accessible to everyone. With social media platforms, we now create and share billions of images of ourselves with ease. However, these images often do not truly reflect who we are, but rather who we aspire to be.
With my Figures series, I challenge this notion of self-representation by painting figures composed of cubes inviting viewers to reconsider what it means to capture and communicate the essence of the human image.
Through this unique perspective, I hope to inspire contemplation and conversation about how we see ourselves and others. I want to broaden our understanding of what it means to be human, and how we can better express this through art.
