Paradox – Oil on panel
A painting from my 2019 exhibition, ‘a Trap for the Escape Artist’.
Masked figures have always been one of my favourite subjects to paint. I’ve always loved creating a sense of drama and mystery in my work, and perhaps even a sense of unease.
Who is this ominous figure and what is his agenda? To further enhance the sense of unease, I used bright pinks and blues to directly clash with the creepy figure. This visual paradox ties everything together, but what is the story here? I have one in mind, but I would prefer the viewers to decide what they are seeing.
