Mute Chaos


Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
The internal conflicts I have been experiencing under different circumstances throughout my life, sometimes I feel that I am composed of two selves, which I named id and ego. The id is the emotional self, who urges every desire to be satisfied. On the other hand, Ego is the rational self, who is calm and realistic. Which depicts the psychological state of my mind at different moments.

How was the illustration used:
Personal project for gallery purpose

How did you make this work:
I chose chalk pastel because it gives me a sensation of touch and allows me to express my emotions more delicately as well as energetically. Not only does pastel gives me the freedom to vent my feelings on the paper, but it also stimulates my senses, especially when it sometimes breaks as if this results from the conflicts in my art.
