escape/entrap is a series exploring the idea of a different reality as experienced by the artist.
A common sentiment among millennials today is their wish to keep seeing new places, to leave wherever they usually work and live. They agonize over how small their world is and how there is nothing new. It is as if being trapped in a maze of our own making, be it in the physical or the emotional sense. Through this series, the artist attempts to create an escape on another plane of reality, however temporary, within the trappings.
The escape is created through learning how to see again through clearer eyes, without preconceived notions, without memories, without attachments.
