About IN Bound

In these artworks, the interplay of intricate details and bold contrasts mirrors the constant struggle to maintain focus amidst the chaos of modern life. The stark black backgrounds represent the overwhelming noise and distractions that bombard us daily, while the contrasting organic shapes symbolize our attempts to carve out moments of clarity and concentration. Similar to the experience of individuals with autism, who often find solace in their own inner worlds, these paintings capture the essence of seeking refuge amidst overwhelming sensory stimuli. Each brushstroke is a deliberate act of reclaiming control over one's attention and mental space, a visual reminder of the inner strength required to navigate the complexities of existence.

Moreover, the comparison to femininity adds another layer of depth to the interpretation. Just as women must constantly navigate societal expectations and roles, these artworks depict the relentless balancing act between external pressures and internal focus. The struggle to block out distractions and maintain clarity of thought becomes not just a personal challenge but also a reflection of broader societal dynamics.


Ultimately, "In Bound" invites viewers to reflect on their own experiences of concentration and distraction, urging them to find moments of calm amidst the chaos. It serves as a poignant reminder of the resilience of the human spirit and the power of art to capture the complexities of the human experience. The series is an invitation to contemplate the delicate balance between intense concentration and the rhythms of a life lived in constant motion. It pays tribute to the indomitable spirit of individuals who gracefully navigate the labyrinth of expectations, challenges, and aspirations. Elena's intention is that these artworks resonate deeply with viewers, sparking introspection about their own experiences of connection, detachment, and the intricate layers of existence—a tapestry woven with strength, resilience, and the beauty of being uniquely human.
