“Winding Triptych” and “Deep Space”

“Space Between” delves into the complexities of the human condition, exploring the unseen realms that shape our existence. This exhibition utilizes the power of art to illuminate the spaces between myth and reality, consciousness and subconscious, and intuition and logic.

The artworks presented here act as portals, inviting viewers to navigate the intangible spaces that define our experiences. By confronting these spaces, we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Themes of isolation, connection, and the search for meaning will resonate throughout the exhibition, prompting introspection and dialogue.

Drawing inspiration from the rich tapestry of human mythology, the works explore the universal themes that connect us across cultures and time. By investigating the space between the literal and metaphorical, the artist challenges our perceptions and invite us to consider the deeper forces at play in our lives.

Ultimately, “Space Between” seeks to celebrate the power of intuition and the human capacity for self-discovery. Through engagement with these artworks, viewers are empowered to explore the gaps and silences within themselves, fostering a sense of connection and shared humanity.
