Fleshy bodies collapse together, seemingly sitting and waiting for something. Some are looking around while others appear more preoccupied with their own state or body. Their forms are contrasted against a dark black that permeates their environment, evoking a moment of disarray in the messy drips running through the sharp red frame running along the edge of the canvas.
Both of my works for the exhibition deal with desires felt by men. Hunger, fatigue are both something that we feel without wanting them to be felt. By bringing these raw feelings and emotions out, we can finally be free from them. It is like looking at the painting as a mirror and I hope that the viewers can find peace from these everyday concerns by letting it out in front of them. The word ‘Hunger’ can mean many things here. You can be hungry for love, hungry for the money and more. Therefore, this painting has no specific subject as the main focus, which evokes the viewers to have their own perspective on it. It depends on how one is feeling ‘hungry’ to. This painting uses simple colors combined with patterns that vigorously intertwine with each other creating both stillness and confusion within ourselves.
