Awareness, the series.
The Awareness series was completed in 2017 as graduate work in Tartu Art College. The series alongside with a written essay is a recording of the artists journey of overcoming depression and anxiety experienced at the time. It's about finding strength in one's weakness and overcoming the need to hold on to pain as a part of one's identity.
The Awareness series paintings were created simultaneously in 3 months. Each painting is 150x130cm in size. The artist painted in several overlapping layers. While one painting was drying , another was was taken on. While painting, the artists had only vague visions of the wanted outcome. Some of the paintings transformed dramatically throughout the process and the initial version of the painting is buried deep under several layers of paint. Finally each painting found its intuitive finish when the corresponding topic had been solved.
