Light of my life

Light of my life
Photo Description:
For this painting, I explored the changing relationship we have with technological modernization. The title of this painting is a play on words, because light of my life usually means a romantic love, I subverted its meaning. I ironically presented an isolated human figure in a dark, empty room, his decaying face illuminated only by the light of a computer screen. The anthropomorphic, romantic light now becomes the harsh, cold, inhuman light from a computer screen, humanizing only the facet of the person, the rest disappearing into the dark, enigmatic background.
