This piece is a statement of freedom; I chose colours based on intuition as well as colour symbolism. I used iridescent acrylics and matte acrylics to create contrast and analogies. Despite working on this piece from a place of frustration, with the juxtaposition of each colour, I wanted to express freedom and strength. The most fascinating and important artists in history are those who did not need anyone's approval, they would fly above prejudice and continue their own way. We live in a world where being ourselves is derided. Being unique is not always appreciated and I do not stand by that. I love how we are all different with unique traits, different thoughts and ways of perceiving life.
This piece celebrates our lives and souls independently from where we come from, who we love, what we do in life and our choices. As long as we are not hurting anyone, we do not need anyone's approval.
Movement and rhythm were sudden and open to recreate a sense of restlessness but also freedom. The texture of this painting is thick and highly detailed.
