In these interesting times, transformation is constant and across all levels. It is a dynamic process during which the concept of relevance is constantly being redefined, whereas artworks’ inherent narrative, being the value in its own right, as well as sentimentality under this context, are acquiring a political quality. Familiarity and intimacy are my main points of interest.
Depicting or constructing colourful instances of small revelations or the ties to a sentimentally active state of the soul, as a means of preserving human nature in the middle of a swirling reality; underlining and thus augmenting the presence of emotions.
