Many Contradictions, Many Moods

Many Contradictions Many Moods” explores the complexity and multifaceted nature of human emotions, experiences, and perspectives. It acknowledges the many and often contradicting feelings, thoughts and behaviors that may exist within an individual while implying that each of these is a rich contribution to one’s experience. With this work, viewers are urged to embrace their inherent diversity, recognising that it is through these contradictions and moods that we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us. This ongoing series currently features works of abstract portraiture done in either acrylic or oil on canvas. Each portrait places an emphasis on form, color, and composition over realistic representation. This is done to depict the subject in a way that goes beyond physical likeness and to delve into the complexities of their inner world and emotional landscape. Repeating motifs of geometric shapes, intersecting lines, and complementary colors are used to tell familiar stories of conflict, tension, angst, lust, and addiction, amongst others.
