Artwork Description

Reproduction Print on paper

Signed and numbered on the back.

The original artwork 'Luke' won the overall Bluethumb Art Prize in 2018.

Artist note:
Through Luke’s face, I wanted to explore the possible anxieties faced by individuals of our generation, living in the first world. We live in a very different environment from the past, the accessibility of the Internet and social network services seem to affect our way of perceiving relationships or self-observing/reflecting, and how we formulate our egos and access memories. I think this has made our generation more shallow and vulnerable. As a theme, I want to focus on anxiety as being a potential result of these digital spaces as a contributor to inner conflicts. Also through this portraiture, I wanted to explore the painting medium through the combined effect of the figurative and abstract painting and spontaneous methodology.
