Original artwork description:

"Black Iris" unveils an enigmatic chapter within the introspective S(PA)RROW series, which delves into the artist's emotional landscape and the vulnerable spaces that define our existence in this world. Through symbolic elements, the series portrays the evolving mental states, lessons, and revelations of the artist, with the personified Sparrow and the expressive flora offering glimpses of hope amidst the emotional journey. Each artwork, painted on raw canvas, becomes a relatable and deeply personal reflection of life's transformative experiences.

In the creation of "Black Iris," the raw side of the canvas serves as a nurturing ground, akin to the cultivation of flourishing plant life. The artist begins by staining the canvas and applying gesso, forging a solid foundation. Color is then meticulously layered, followed by the subtle yet significant hand-dyed red thread, reserved exclusively for the artist's signature in the bottom right corner, a mark of authenticity and intention.

The heavy reliance on symbolism is evident in "Black Iris" as the artist weaves a tale of disorientation and loneliness through the carefully chosen imagery, colors, and the signature red thread. The enigmatic Black Iris flower, signifying "Oxymoron," encapsulates the contradictory emotions the artist experiences as an expatriate in a foreign land – a place where her existence feels unreal and disconnected from the world around her.

Through the captivating beauty and solitude embodied in "Black Iris," the artist invites the viewer to explore the complexities of human emotion and the dissonance that can arise when navigating unfamiliar territory. It is a compelling reminder of the universal nature of our personal struggles and the shared desire for connection and belonging.
