Description

The entire meaning of "No Sense of Direction" follows with a directionless head guiding the viewer's eyes to a focal point on the center of the canvas. From various forms and contrasting size proportions, the presence of balance showcases a symphony of shapes. The enlarged snake-head poking from the right side creates a progression of patterns, repetition, and balance with the other geometric and organic shape. Together, the position less forms float around in different areas, but create a harmonic movement of an actual snake gliding through the frame. The choice of the snake's appearance involves an abstract perspective with the tails swirl and whole body curved in no clear direction.
