Heat Waves

Jackson's Art Prize 2024
Acrylic, Pastel Pencil
71 x 50.5 cm


“In the midst of summer, London found itself grappling with a series of relentless heat waves. The gardens, parks, and marshes in my neighborhood seemed encased within a vast heat dome. This experience became an inspiration for me. I translated it onto paper by drawing random lines, each representing the vibrant life of plants, using imaginary color palettes. With a roller, I unleashed a massive wave of acrylic, creating a dynamic and expressive visual representation of the heat wave’s impact on the flora in the surroundings.”
