30 Days: Exploring the Shifting Landscape of the Mind
The combination of colors and shapes in these gradient backgrounds give me inspiration and create an opportunity for deep thoughtful reflection. Each day, I chose one background on which I created a visual narrative. Be it drawing, painting, or writing, I use the gradient backgrounds to translate my thoughts and feelings to allow you to explore my internal world. Each piece will be a visual diary, its unique and evocative images working to entice you into exploring the inner workings of my mind. In the end, these thirty paintings come together as a single piece made across different states of mind. A collection of many present me's that each thought of something new to show the world. Vulnerability is my goal. I aim to be open and honest in showing you the ever-shifting landscape of the mind. By allowing myself to explore the complex and fickle condition of the mind from day-to-day, I aim to learn to be kind to myself, to face head on the difficulties and fears that might hold me back, and to learn that we must value every single day, for the present is all we have. In experiencing these paintings, I hope you can experience the same.
