Abstract
 Back to: Painting

This acrylic on paper artwork was created during the lockdown of 2020 and was inspired by a group of teenagers on a local playground. At that time, the use of such public spaces was prohibited in order to stop the spread of the disease, yet their actions, in this case, served as an inspiration, a symbol of our longing for freedom and enjoyment of life during those challenging times.

The composition of the figure, almost as if about to get out of the picture, serves as a metaphor for our desires to escape.
