acrylic, letterpress and rice paper on canvas
The work is part of the Abode series, which I have been working on since 2014.
The term ‘abode’ means place of residence, habitat, abode. This archaic term, which was often used in the 19th century, became popular again in the 21st century. In the process of working on this series, I am trying to find a form in which the meaning of this term is inscribed.
The main motif of these drawings is architecture, defragmented and reassembled into new, often repetitive motifs. In some works, I treat architecture as a series of symbols, urban scenes, while in some works, figures appear and thus introduce time as a new dimension and change the nature of the resulting schemes.
