ZXY - Nostalgia



Acrylic on canvas - 100x70 cm

Nostalgia is a feeling originating from romanticising the past. Can become noise on one's mind and cause frustration and unable one to free the self from the feelings long lasting inside, directing to conflict between feeling and goals of the past. 

Z, X and Y are cornerstones forming the base of behaviour. In its Origin, the point of intersection of those axis, the individual is found isolated and kept to his thoughts. Trapped by the conflict estabelished by a force to seek further and a feeling of settlement.
