My artwork is about the concept of individuality and everyone’s perception of the world—the world that they live in. If the universe was the vast and endless ocean, then we would all be floating in our own little buoyant bubble.
I was inspired by bottled ecospheres, or ocean message bottles, to encase myself (a cartoon/artistic version) in a transparent glass teapot with a cork on top. To me, sunsets are very beautiful and striking yet they also induce feelings of nostalgia and melancholy in me. Nonetheless, it is these peculiar feelings that make me treasure these times the most, which is what I wanted to express in my painting.
