Served as a personal ‘memento mori’ for the last three years, Wounderland : A Wounded Wonder explore a manifestation of fear, anxiety, precarious future as a glimpse of hope. In a series of paintings with a more cohesive background with its main character. Wounderland have always been a narrative background, a post-apocalyptic realm within Arkiv’s mithical and fantasy world, it was never manifested visually in such detailed ways.
