Bear in the Jungle


During my visit to a René Magritte exhibition in Brussels, I gained insight into the artist’s intriguing mind. The alignment of my project’s initial concept with its execution fueled new inspiration, resulting in two pieces unmistakably influenced by Magritte. Magritte’s art plays with the visible and the hidden, urging viewers to reconsider their assumptions about the world. His paintings serve as a visual philosophy, encouraging introspection and prompting a deeper contemplation beyond surface appearances. The bear is wrapped in texture of real fabric, his suit, shirt, tie, hat and glasses are created from photographed details from cities and towns in Belgium. Besides vision correction, these glasses symbolise a mosaic of clarity and insight. Within the frames are fragments of mystery, representing the deliberate concealment of emotions. Through distorted elements, the glasses signify an intentionally altered perception, a visual metaphor for nuanced perspectives, in essence, they transcend accessories, becoming portals into a world shaped by intricacies – a narrative of vision, identity, and vibrant life.
