A cycle inspired by our everyday struggle to face ourselves, to remain true to what we are. To persist, because that struggle between one’s wishes and prospects is a struggle that might also derail us and lead to us becoming something that is not in our being. The characters presented in each of the graphics are the faces every one of us carries. The works are prints of carefully drawn faces with a rare application of few free-form brush strokes. Metal zippers are an intervention that introduces the stylized look of the works and entails limitation in the choice of base. In order to follow the continuity and logic in the workmanship, industrial materials with fabric-like texture were used.
