The artist delves into the intricate complexities of relationships, focusing on the memories intertwined with his past and his ex-girlfriend. By carefully selecting photos from his personal archive and purposefully cropping out her presence while adding vibrant colors to the shadows, he seeks to create a bridge between the past and the present.

The dreamy and vibrant colors in the images construct an idealized and treasured past, blurring the line between reality and imagination. These dreamlike visuals transport viewers on a captivating journey through a realm where dreams and memories intermingle.

The act of printing the photos takes on profound significance, as it becomes the conduit through which the artist can reunite with his past. The photographs act as a medium of reunion, closing the gap between what once was and what remains in the present. Symbolically, the artist reunites the light that once illuminated his ex-girlfriend and now shines upon him. This juxtaposition of light and shadow, of the past and the present, infuses the artwork with a contemplative and introspective aura.
