Acrylic painting on canvas, Untitled

This artwork is about those vague moments that I go through like the majority of the people in my country. These moments when you feel the looks of people around you, that silent dialogue where questions are asked, with no answer, silent mouths, a moment when eyes do the talking, and you have no answer for those strange faces around you. You don’t know if they are questioning you or reassuring you, or accusing you, while your eyes are looking for the truth somewhere. Sit on this chair facing them as they all look at you and wait for the answer.
