Tear Me Apart 2019

Tear Me Apart 2019


video, ink on canvas

45 x 45cm


A two-dimensional plane, a canvas is a blank slate that offers the freedom to breathe life into visions. Tear Me Apart (2019) explores the artist's power to not only envisage new worlds but also their ability to dominate and consume a medium. The phrase "To see through/ To feel through" is etched onto the canvas, repeated over and over again until the image becomes a large void. As the hand continues to paint, the ink of the brush beings to dissolve the delicate surface of the thin skin. What really is the role of the artist? To weave a narrative? To voice our idea into the world? The true fear of becoming an artist lies in not only the burden of income or the desperation for fame but in the act of creation itself.
