ARTIST TRAP (A TRAP FOR HENRI MATISSE)

2020

CHARCOAL, INK, ACRYLIC, OIL PASTEL, COLORED PENCIL

23.5 X 17.75 INCHES

A trap to entrance and distract Henri Matisse. Intrigued by the treatment of space using color and objects in The Red Studio by Matisse, I interpreted this method as self-portrait of himself. This space, inspired by Matisse's cut-outs, is a maze, an exhibition of Matisse's works and a studio. The trap confronts the artist with his own creations through complex perspectives and a variety of life-long creations.
