Black Out, 2005-2008, my intention was to show people in a haunted state as reflected by fragility and helplessness. Their feeling of fear and anxiety is related to concerns over social and cultural conflict.
I tried to depict the inner voices of these people who are looking for their soul and freedom. I wanted to speak metaphorically by combining of black and white: contrast, adjacency, and territory of each colour impart a sense of imprisonment and freedom.
I used two panels to show the duality of external and internal reality and to reach a balance between destructive and constructive impulses.
