This artwork is part of a series of four, to do with non-linear paths, of life circumstances that are unexpected and change your life’s direction.
This artwork is part of the Scattered Trajectories project which is a reflection and a critical review on performance in the North American culture. In this project, I want to confront the notion of a linear path, which to many people equals success, and propose a different way to view our life. Life is not a linear succession but a series of accidents, oppositions, chance encounters and sudden events. The paintings in this project are paired - with one painting showing some geometrical abstraction and the other showing only lyrical abstraction. In each painting, you will find references to trajectories, paths and life events.
