Chaos in the Colour

"Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment" - Claude Monet

The exhibition depicts figures calm against a turbulent sea of color. Aspects of this exhibition are autobiographical documenting the struggle of the individual against external forces beyond one's control; this is where the exhibition gets its title "Chaos in the Color". The title of the exhibition relays what is being communicated between the spokes of the color wheel to the audience.

Each piece acts as a conversation in color with the viewer; captivating the audience with radiating reds and vibrant oranges, color is the tool being used to convey the spectrum of feelings felt by the artist to the viewer. The works in the show focus primarily on the colors with which the figures are placed against rather than engulfed in. This placement of the figures in each piece makes the backgrounds of the works convey the meaning for each work, while each figure acts to anchor the viewer in the sea of colors.
