Out of Curiosity

The figure in the painting escapes beyond the frames. Through the frame, painted in an intense color, the artist attempts to define specific boundaries while allowing the character, characteristic of the cycle, to leave the frame. To look beyond the “established boundaries”.


The eye is a symbol of the need to perceive, to see more than what is obvious. It represents the desire to gaze beyond the known space. To peer beyond specifically defined limits.


Pink, the color of sweetness, joy, associated with frivolity and childhood, is confined within a precisely defined, orderly, red frame. This is a play between the freedom of expression and the limitations imposed by structures.


It reflects on the relationship between personal expression, the need to explore various spaces, and conformity.
