Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I made them so that each one of them is unique in its subject and technique. But they all share one thing, they are all snapshots or a magnification of objects that tell a story.
I am Nikola Tesla: is a tribute to the scientist who discovered the "now" technology that we use to operate mobile phones.
The Narrative of my Day: is a snapshot of my desk at a certain point during the day, showing my glasses, coffee, books and most importantly the wedding photo to the far left of Papa and Mama.
Nothing Says Autumn Better than Orchids: I wanted to show my love for Orchids who actually bloom during autumn and winter. I have them at home and for me they are pets not plants because they live on for 8 years or more.
And This My Dear is How it is Done: This was an older project that I never got to complete at college. It was meant to be on 2 meters panel, however, the academic year ended before I could finish it. So I redid it especially for this endeavour.
