The visual language in my work has the potential to sprout various connections to situations that the viewer may have experienced as an individual or simply as a part of humanity. An important art-reality connection is emotion, or the illusion of emotion shown by the figures or the objects in the piece. The single emotion of the figures and objects in my work interacts with another element to create this “visual language” that essentially is the key point of the narrative, which allows for the viewer to be aware of the emotional situation in the piece itself. This condensed and subconscious feeling experience is similar to reading a comic book or watching an episodic series.
