SYMBOLIC evolution COLLECTION
This new collection of original paintings aims to explore the evolution of language in today's society from older symbols to shortened words usually used as 'text speak' in instant messaging. I think what is interesting to point out is the fact that these shorthand words in text messages are becoming and to some extent already are a universal language like the symbols and pictorial signs of old. In the context of these contemporary and expressionistic paintings, both symbols and text speak are utilised in a universal way to dive into the the deeper message being portrayed by the paintings. That everything new and old, be it language, images and even music are all connected by our emotions and our perceptions as a species.
