Into the Open III

Egg Tempera on Canvas

This collection, titled Into the Open, showcases a synthesis of artistic techniques, predominantly employing self-made egg tempera alongside an array of graphic tools, chalk, and pens. The nuanced gray tones within the series emerge from a fusion of colors, resulting in a visually rich and textured palette. The entire series aims to liberate itself from preconceived notions, intentions, and concepts. It serves as a visual manifestation of a Zen-like ambiance β€” an exploration marked by a deliberate reduction of color and a profound immersion into the uncharted and the open.

Central to the composition of this painting is a poignant depiction of a hand, delicately drawn in the midst of an intricate interplay. One hand descends while another faintly ascends, evoking a symbolic encounter reminiscent of Michelangelo's iconic portrayal. However, in this reinterpretation, the meeting, or perhaps the deliberate avoidance, of hands serves as a deliberate citation β€” a memory explored and reimagined in a fresh context within the painting.
