In each painting, I wanted the cracks to have a liaison between each other, to be close but not necessarily always connected. The cracks on the canvas are also restrained by the limitations of the canvas, which for me suggests the same way that our thoughts have their own limitations.
They appear like a grid, which represents the privacy of the individual being over existence.
For me, the cracks represent a virtual prison door behind which the intimacy of the individual is at times fragile, depicting the constant struggle between keeping or revealing confidences, being open or closed. This, I feel, is the choice of engaging in harmless, superficial talk or revealing the full depth of one’s emotions, opening one’s heart and therefore becoming vulnerable.
