It took me a while to be who I am... and ...but I am. 2023 Algraphy and gouache on Kitakata paper, 110 x 70cm each.
This diptych symbolises the universal relation between one and one's own existence. The struggle inherent to human condition: to exist and find meaning in existence. It is depicted as a circle in an attempt to mimic Sisyphus' rock, which is used in the myth as a metaphor of the struggle. 
In the first print, the struggle is bigger than the entity, the individual is completely overtaken by the weight of its own condition.
In the second print, the entity has physically overcome the struggle, it has come to terms with the nature of their relation: the struggle is fundamental to its existence, one simply needs to live with it.​​​​​​​
