By using a layered approach and through the incorporation of patterns reminiscent of camouflage designs, paintings from the ‘Mindscapes’ series explore themes surrounding identity, social interaction and psychological concepts.
From unconscious impression management to conscious manipulation and deceit, the larger artwork, “The Illusionist,” addresses the question of the individual’s authenticity in social settings.
In most of the smaller pieces, the extent of patterned areas of the canvas signifies an individual’s psychological spectrum or domain, while other layers may be situational. Shapes and figures mainly emerge through the use of outlines or negative space. They manifest the part of the pattern ‘in use’ at a particular point in time, thus representing a snapshot of the individual’s state of mind, rather than a physical presence.
