THE MISSING ROOM

(Current Work)

''The Missing Room '' relates to the universal notion of ''Rite of Passage''. A rite of passage is important in the development of an identity because it marks a transition into a new phase of life. Ceremony or ritual, the passage occurs when an individual leaves one group to enter another. It involves a significant change of status in society. But in a lifetime we all go through personal rites of passage that shape us, without always being aware of it as it happens.

The characters present in this series are inspired by the painter's cultural roots from France and Central Europe as well as creatures from her own imaginary world, they interact, evolve in unknown or familiar landscapes to the painter. This series is more focused on the identity of the individual, culture, or self experience and how the individual is challenged and grow throughout life.
