This series is inspired by the concept of the red and blue pill in the movie, The Matrix, where the protagonist is given a choice between continuing on in the quest for a plausible truth or being blissfully ignorant. Even away from the fantastical world of the movie, human beings are faced with this choice on a daily basis even in our mundane lives, be it with reference to the political and social climate, our personal lives or while exploring the depths of our being. Everyday, we make the decision between red or blue. The artworks presented in pairs are a personal reminder of what we might choose at an individual level. I translated this concept into my work by using the colours as a driving force juxtaposed with fluid abstract forms.
