It calls on the viewer to examine the intricacies of color in their earthy forms, of the subtleties in expression, and what may often go overlooked amid the propagation of high-gloss visual content which overstimulate the senses in its imposing allure. As fiction and reality are becoming synonymous and indistinguishable, I aimed to capture an organic depiction of lived simplicity. Where do we draw the line between the fabricated and the real?There is a beauty in the ephemerality of the human condition.

To be human is to be incomplete, in perpetual motion. Impermanence highlights the virtue of a passing moment. We are all but transient entities on this earth, our bodies and the material world around us are in the act of revisiting the dust from which we came. I envisioned a series of images which embrace a passivity and slowness so often overshadowed by the widespread prioritization of unrestrained productivity. Blissfully ruminating in the passage of time, there is beauty in change, in darkness.Imperfection reminds us of the endless variation in existence that can make even the most common things unique, leaning into a more connected way of living.This work interprets a deliberate process of introspection, pared down to its barest essence, simultaneously unfinished yet uncluttered.
