Original artwork description:

"Searching" is a black and white gouache painting on paper from my Reflections series. The series, both literally and figuratively, reflects on my state of mind and mental state during a very painful transitionary phase in my life.

In creating each piece, I spent a lot of time taking self-timed photos of myself interacting with mirrors. Sometimes these interactions were confrontational, angry, and even violent; other times they were quiet, contemplative, and filled with longing or sadness.

In this piece, I hoped to capture a moment of exploration and curiosity between the two figures. The physical space itself becomes ambiguous and it is unclear which figure is looking at who and which space/person is real. In this way the two figures imbue a kind of 'searching' for the self and plays with themes of identity, time, and space.
