Acrylic on canvas


As seen in my TEDxTalk, Mythtopia centers on perception and how it differs according to person and placement. Its aim is to illustrate the subjectivity of perception, using art as a medium. Which colour stands out as dominant to you, and does this change depending on how you look at the painting? The canvas can be hung or viewed from any angle, meaning that different colours will stand out depending on the angle the canvas is viewed from. The textured surface of the canvas is another key feature, made tactile to enhance the impressions left upon the viewer, and add another dimension to their sensory experience, by employing the sense of touch.
