Effacement III

Acrylic & soft pastel on canvas

This composition exists to create a calm meditative space for reflection. It is inspired by the marks left behind on a wall after the covering of graffiti. The form sits gently in the background whilst the repeated rows of colored lines pull the eye of the viewer elsewhere. This work comes from a series focused on themes of lost communication, erasure, censorship and the struggle for personal expression in a time that is  increasingly individualized and homogenized.
