Is This Happiness? is a collection of paintings inspired by contemporary life and the evolution of casual communication.
For example; the people we associate with and how they contribute to our own personal identity and growth, our superstitions, customs, and beliefs and how we rely on our experiences which are gained through our ability to interact and engage with one another. Also investigated in Is This Happiness is our desire for authenticity in life… Our desire for tastes, for routines and of course our attitudes.
Eliminating notions of texture and depth, and instead fabricating a style that’s minimal this work holds attention to detail paramount in its execution. Clear lines and sparse bold colours along with a clinical precision have been developed with a diagrammatic approach to each composition.
With these paintings the artist hopes to submit an investigation to the viewer, an introspective and critical look at an aspect of our many complex animalistic rituals, communications and social discourse.
The show will take place from 18th to 25th November 2011.
