Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 

The artwork I have submitted is a work that attempts to combine the suppressed psychology of humans and the body trapped in a square screen. The image of a human being oppressed and trapped is often symbolised by the unstable state of mind of humans in my painting. Through this work, I wanted to share such an experience where anyone can recall the psychology trapped somewhere in their mind. For example, there is anxiety and trapped psychology that people may have experienced at least during the pandemic.
