The Narratives collection explores tension and mistranslation. Byexaggerating drama and theatrics with a reductive rendering that emulates cartoon for its 2-dimensionality, the painting pacifies an otherwise intense and fierce emotion into a comicical relief, as a vague homage to early classical theatre and its underlying philosophies.
