Exploring the depths of human experience, the series “The Beauty Within Self-Doubt” depicts bodies and shadows, representing the thoughts and energy of the subjects. The central theme of the work is about accepting who we are, imperfections and all, and finding a way to connect with ourselves. The figures in the paintings are depicted as tangled in daily routines and relationships, striving to become better. They are portrayed without constraints or beautification, offering a raw and unrefined interpretation of the human condition but still exhibiting the beauty within self-doubt and leading the viewer to consider empathy and understanding towards others. The paintings express personal struggles; that which is uncomfortable within us and the understanding that part of that discomfort comes from knowing that only we can confront and deal with it.
The three-dimensional approach, using the painted sides as an extension to the main canvas, means that the series flows from one painting to another. The overlapping shapes add to the emotional intensity of the work, which presents a confrontation with reality and sometimes expresses inner conflict. The paintings are emotionally charged, capturing the depth and complexity of the human experience in a static yet visually and emotionally dynamic manner.
