This series of paintings called “Time Paradox” is about how time seems to move faster as we age. Even though perception of time fluctuates throughout our lives this concept seems to be a constant. To illustrate this thought I have painted 10 people to represent 10 different decades of life. In the beginning the figure moves rapidly while the background stays static and in the end the figure is static while the background moves rapidly. The collage images behind the figures have been divided into 12 segments to embody time.
