In the distance

This is the fourth picture in my series Finding peace. See the whole series here and read a description.


The whole series is about the importance of integrity, wich I choose to illustrate with a big bubble. I´m using the bubble as a symbol because I want to visualise our inner struggle, the struggle we all have with putting up borders, but also letting other people in, close to our heart. Our inner worlds can be hard to talk about, and sometimes hard to understand. That´s why I´m trying to put it into my art, to take something that feels diffuse and create an image that maybe makes it a little bit clearer.


This picture shows someone out in the world. He´s sitting alone on a field, but still feeling safe. He´s looking out into the distance, not knowing what there is or what will come. But he has an inner strength. Also, I wanted to make this image darker than the other ones. The world is never good or bad, never just beautiful or ugly, never truly safe. I believe we can come a long way if we find a safe place within, a place where we´ll believe in ourselves.
