The Past is Gone, 2014
Water Colour on Paper
76 x 28cm
The vertical composition and aquamarine hues of the vase that contrast with a dull background draws one’s attention to the main subject depicted. However, it soon becomes clear that the true focal point of what is contained within the vase is located out of the picture and kept ambiguous. With the use of brushstrokes in a staccato motion, one also begins to focus on the negative space between objects.
