Torn suppression

“Torn suppression”

Paint strips and paint


In “Torn Suppression”, I used torn pieces of wall paint and painted them to look like rock textures. The process of tearing up wall paint reminds us of the outcome of violent repression in ones home. It tries to comment on an attempt to break free from the four walls of the living space.



And by manipulating the texture of the ripped paint into a geological state, it represents an act of preserving the consequences of released anger and recreating it into an object. Puzzling the pieces together becomes an intimate act of self-reflection and empowerment. The abstract outcome reflects the beauty of it by overcoming ones fears and emotions. Succumbing to them is healing and healthy.
