Anglo-Brazilian practitioner Iluá Hauck da Silva delves into the conundrums of the human condition. Turbulent inner states of mind are depicted through digital works that are simultaneously baroque and minimal, delicate and visceral, charged and tranquil. In Disquiet, a cloud floats above a minimalist bedroom, becoming a metaphor for the psychological and subconscious realms. The fluffy white mass is tainted with a red mist, visually combining two states: good and evil. Elements of the surreal are threaded throughout the beautiful yet brutal installation, symbolising personal feelings of anxiety, isolation, loneliness and longing.
