when this kind of fire starts

drawing, photography, mixed media

this exhibition was comissioned by graphic and editorial designer sofia de eça.

the artworks showcased in when this kind of fire starts offer introspective glimpses into the delicate nature of fresh starts. they embody solitary musings, exploring avenues of escape and alternative paths forward. like pages torn from a diary, they serve as acts of liberation, unveiling personal narratives amidst life’s complexities. this exhibition signals a renewed consciousness, emphasizing the interconnectedness of the personal and political realms. as we navigate the intricacies of existence, we come to realize that simplicity often proves to be the most challenging path of all.
