Humor (1)

This is a series of manipulated images on the topic of humor. My understanding of humor is a balance between discomfort and disgust. People find an unexpected situation and others’ suffering funny.

In manipulating these images, I created a surreal environment in my work to question where is the line between reality and illusions in the fast-paced modern society.

  Deforestation   The multi-stage etching captures both the memory of the time before the city and the city as it is. The first stage of the print was a line drawing of elegant flowers. Then, I purposefully erased the flowers and etched the city, leaving marks from the flowers to capture the action of deforestation done in order to build a city. In the third stage, I added marks to create the chaos and texture of the city.   Size: 15 X 17 (inches)
