VITA is a series of paintings with a shared motif based on the heart waveform. Each painting explores a single aspect of being alive, from material realities of skin and bone to intangible elements of love, time, and impermanence. The shared motif connotes life, the space around it not life; the boundaries separating these two spaces vary in character and sometimes the line is traversed. The series is conceived as an installation in which each canvas presents a unique scenario, but which also forms part of a larger pattern. Placed side by side the waveforms create a continuous horizontal band, amplifying the visual pulse and contributing to a larger rhythm.
