Shadows Art and Music

This collection of paintings explores a range of human emotions, from confusion and hidden darkness to emotional pain and the burden of sorrow. Through swirling pastel shades, sharp contrasts, and symbolic imagery, the artworks convey feelings of directionless, inner turmoil, and the desire for escape. However, amidst the darkness, there is a glimmer of hope and potential for renewal symbolized by light, forgiveness, and the journey toward introspection and healing.

Listen to and Mint Shadows

The song explores the feeling of being lost and facing hardship. The lyrics paint a picture of individuals living in darkness, confused and unsure of the path forward.

Mint Yearning for Escape

Yearning for Escape: A silhouetted figure with outstretched arms stands against a vibrant background of swirling teal and pink hues that create a visual vortex. The image evokes a sense of movement and energy, with the figure appearing to be either rising into an abstract, colourful whirlwind or perhaps orchestrating it.

Mint Whispers

Whispers: Soft pastel colours form the silhouettes of two profiles facing away from each other against a calming, abstract background. The subtle curves and gentle lines suggest a serene and minimalist aesthetic.

Mint The Dice Thrown

The Dice Thrown: A geometric composition features a central diamond shape composed of faces with different expressions flanked by semi-abstract, face-like forms on each side. The color scheme consists of contrasting shades like pink, teal, and black, creating a visual dialogue between the figures.

Mint Introspection

Introspection: Abstract shapes in black, pink, and light blue hues resemble a stylized depiction of motion or a flowing entity. The central focus is a contrasting black shape with featherlike extensions that seem to merge into the surrounding vibrant pink and blue areas.

Mint Heavy Hearts

Heavy Hearts: Vibrant pastel colours give shape to six stylized figures against a neutral background. The figures are depicted in a simplified manner with minimal detail and appear to interact with each other, lacking identifiable facial features.

Mint Forgiveness Unbound

Forgiveness Unbound: A white dove is soaring upwards with clouds in varying shades of pink and blue in the background. The sun is peeking through the clouds beneath the bird, casting a glow that highlights the scene.

Mint Cracked Light

Cracked Light: Vivid shades of pink and blue dominate the composition, with abstract shapes resembling cracked or broken pieces. The textured appearance gives a sense of depth and fragmentation as the shapes interlock imperfectly, suggesting a complex mosaic or shattered glass.

Mint Blindfold

Blindfold: A brightly coloured, abstract representation of a face is depicted with bold pastel shapes and minimal detail. Stylized eyes with black pupils stand out against the pastel colours, evoking a sense of contemporary digital art.

Mint Barbed Lullaby

Barbed Lullaby: Vibrant geometric shapes converge towards the centre, creating an abstract design reminiscent of a kaleidoscope. The use of bold colours and sharp lines gives the composition a dynamic and modern appearance.

Mint Lost in the Dunes

Lost in the Dunes: Vivid pastel hues are interwoven with contrasting black shapes to create a dynamic and fluid composition. The smooth, sweeping curves give the impression of movement and channel a sense of modern abstraction.
