The word ‘Pause’ provides the conceptual frame for this artwork. As human beings, we often rush through time. In ‘Pause’, the artist creates an opportunity for viewers to suspend their own daily lives in order to consider their roles as individuals.
The layered paint portrays the insanely busy world, for which the artist sees stories in the cracks, highlights and scars that divide the paint into sections, pausing time and agitation.
