The Opposing Forces series is centered around exploring the contrary forces of light/dark, and good/evil. It is in essence the struggle between opposites; the constant struggle with an ever-changing balance that either creates harmony or invites chaos. It is the idea that one cannot obtain true peace until they have overcome their inner turmoil and find a center. With every piece I aim to manifest the pivotal roles that these interconnected forces play in our natures. While also, presenting the struggle between the two, resulting in the personification of this battle in us all. I believe the choices we make define our existence and put us on different paths of self-realization.
