'Reverse' is an invitation to explore pulsating urban scenes of multiple countries, based on sketches captured during 10 months of solo travelling. The artist explores how spontaneous layers of watercolour create an explosive and vibrant atmosphere. A narrative is added with ink and acrylic pens, leveraging the depth of overlap. By breaking each illustration into multiple components and blending them back into the juxtaposition, the work gains a collage-like tangibility. The fragmentation encourages the viewer’s imagination while discovering the scenes and stimulates a sense of wanderlust. The mixed media approach alludes to transience, tranquillity and excitement in familiar and foreign places.
