Acrylic and modelling paste on canvas

I wanted to represent “Home” as an individualistic ideal.

The concept of finding yourself at home is not solely restricted to a specific building but to a feeling of comfort. I wanted to show how said feelings represent warmth and comfort with light rippling through a dark textured abyss.

I executed this by using modelling paste and acrylic paint to create the rigid texture covering mirrors that reflect individual ideals of home. I used cool colours to create a contrasted atmosphere, accenting the warm light.
