This artistic journey delves into the intricacies of perception, inviting viewers to experience the world through a different lens. Through this artwork, it is sought to capture the essence of tunnel vision—a phenomenon where focus becomes so intense that the rest of the world fades into the background. This concept serves as a launching point for exploring the multifaceted nature of human experience.
Against backgrounds of contrasting colors—deep black and inviting beige—the compositions present an interplay between organized geometric shapes and organic forms. This duality mirrors the dichotomy of intense concentration and the pull of external influences, creating a visual dialogue that invites viewers to reflect on their own interactions with the world around them.
As an artist who stretches the boundaries of traditional mediums, the maker is drawn to the notion of value and its measurement. Just as tunnel vision shifts our focus onto a single point, the artist contemplates whether value, in all its complexity, can truly be measured. This exploration becomes a central theme, woven into art pieces to challenge the viewer's perceptions of what holds significance.
Furthermore, these works delve into the intricate relationship between art and everyday life. The maker is particularly drawn to the transformative power of domestic items. Within this creative process, these items act as both process mediums and agents of metamorphosis. They become tools that reshape and redefine, drawing parallels with how perceptions of reality can shift and transform when viewed through a different lens.
