LOCUS LOUNGE 4121 MAIN ST (At King Ed) 8pm September 15
With this art exhibition I want to combine the two focuses of my degree: art history and psychology
I want to illustrate the divergence of images of Buddha from all across the world while illustrating the psychological implications of the subtly different facial expressions found in each rendition of the buddhas face.
Since I posess a degree in psychology and art history, this exhibition reaches a pinnacle in my art experience in the sense that this show is a direct result of the inspiration of my two streams of education.
Each Buddha is drawn freehand with a pencil and then painted in low viscosity black acrylic paint.
The frames are all hand made by me.
In this day and age, which is full of chaotic and colorful neo expressionism, ultra minimalist instalations and profoundly complicated performance art- the purpose of my paintings is the simplify the viewers experience in black white.
My style draws from the psychology behind Rorschach’s infamous inkblot tests and the jagged curiousity of Asian wood block prints. My art is meant to invoke emotion.
