Tension and Release

In 2020, during the pandemic I experienced, like most people, concern of the unknown. That uncertainty brought lots of mixed feelings that unlike other times, many of us experienced in such a short time. In the beginning I wasn't very optimistic about the results of a worldwide lockdown so I started observing people's emotions and how we would react over time. During that introspection I wrote down a few words that resonated to me, the good and the bad: Tension, Fragility, True or False, Fake, Interior, Uncertainty, Optimism, Balance, Hope, Empathy, Harmony.

Those words were very inspirational and led me to decide to work on a series that would include them and translate them into a geometric and abstract form.
