Pilgrimage. Oil on paper. 23.4 x 16.5 in. 12 June 2012.
Perhaps once in our lives, a singular moment defines who we were, are, and will be in the future. When I completed this painting, I took a few steps back and knew that that was what I wanted to do all my life.
This piece is special for me because it conveys all the realizations that I have had in the past four or so months. Not only did I strive to build a clear narrative, I also made sure that it was executed in a style that I am fascinated with as of the moment. With this artwork, I had wanted to tackle and confront the different nuances of the self via a fragmented, landscape-themed manner.
I am proud to say that I was able to use art to deal with life, love, and myself.
