The Esoteric Scream is the main painting in the "Chaos" series which spans from fashion to installation, prints and paintings. Translating the idea of Chaos that leads to Harmony into painting/installation, I decided to study faces of people who reach sexual climax and of people who express their rage through screaming. I took self-portraits, and photos of friends, in an attempt of capturing the turmoil. A screaming self-portrait was chosen as the starting point of my painting. And mixed media was used to further enhance the scream, aesthetically.
