Statement for Series:
Duality explores the positive and negative spaces in life, between lines and in lived experiences. It is a subjective look at balance and lack thereof existing in dualities such as love and hate, peace and violence, life and death, black and white, courageousness and complicity, visible and invisibility. As with the dual nature of every story and the simple and complex decisions that define its vantage point, the artwork takes an internal and external look at life.
