NUDE IN COLOR (2022) AND DREAM FLOWERS (2022)

From my previous work on creating a nude and a flower drawing, I decided that it inspired me enough to make a coloured pencil drawing. Expanding upon the genderless nude idea, I again distorted the figure sufficiently so that it doesn’t represent a human- only slightly.

NUDE IN COLOR (2022)

The work intends to tell people that we’re human, no matter our differences. Removing the figure and replacing it with a space of colour; allows anyone to fill the gaps. It requires the viewer to accept this fact and move on. The colours are of beauty no matter how we look. Purchase it here.

DREAM FLOWERS (2022)

The dream flowers are not based on real flowers but rather ones created from an aesthetic idea. It’s rather personal, but these flowers blossom to remove anxiety for me; they bloom and show their colours when they don’t feel pressured or stressed.

These flowers are, to me, myself projecting my ideas onto the paper of what I want to be, just like these flowers. To bloom and not feel stressed, anxious or pressured. Their essence is to calm.
