An Interlude In Blue is a body of work that portrays the female figure in personal spaces enclosed in a world of silence and desire, touching upon themes of loneliness, isolation and alienation in modern life. Inspired by the “Hopperesque” world, these series seek to engage the viewer in a private world of reverie and self-absorption.
