Human, all too Human

By Ann Lee

49 works

Does art reflect human, or human reflects art? This is the collection of different styles and genres of portrait but all exposing human fragility, sensitivity and emotions. The conflict between the rationality and desire makes us anxious. Under societal pressure and consciousness we easily lose direction. We crave affection of others, then become engulfed by jealousy and hurt. The sense of disorientation is unavoidable condition for us but still, there is strength within us to keep on living. These works are the traces of the tumultuous journey, tools to explore reveries and act as confessions of our lust. At least creating and appreciating arts offers us a breath of fresh air from reality and exit to freedom.
