Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This art piece is focused on the concept of 'absurdism'. I've been moving more and more towards the philosophies associated with absurdism including existentialism. I wanted to express the separation between living forms‚ though at the same time show the relationship and hypothetical outcomes in a non-realist/surrealist manner. I feel that we are our own victims by what we think we know or consider as knowledge and rules/expectations. From this‚ I've painted my feelings of confusion‚ contradiction‚ cycle and separation in the best way I know how.

My Purpose:
This art pieces are focused on my interests in the philosophies behind 'existentialism'. I am fascinated in the small degree of separation between humans and other living forms. With this, I also want to push the acceptance of nudity. We as a society are happy to allow violence to be depicted in television, cartoons and news, though will sensor the all evil nipple! Our skin tells the story of our journey in life and should be celebrated.
