Heavy Illusion (2019)
Acrylic, paste and plaster on canvas – 120/120cm
Social media is the contemporary polished social problem. It was embraced so fast by the majority of people as it satisfied their human need of belonging to an ideal world; the more we pretend we are living in this ‘Perfect World’ the more we are drained in a heavy illusion of happiness and well-being.
From far we could see the attractive silvery effect of the so-called “Perfect World” with the “pretend shiny face” placed in the middle. The closer we get, cracks, glitches and imperfections in the background and the human face, would be seen; the cracks of the virtual world and its illusion of perfection.
