At the threshold of black and white, where illusion means survival, an emperor moth sits camouflaged like a venomous predator. Elegant and unnerving.
- Theme: The Silver Line - Where light at its peak haunts the darkest circumstance.
“Hipnosis” is a curated selection from Anthony’s contemporary fine art series: “Grey Light”
"An intuitive reflection on the muted impressions of light lost beneath the extremes of our environments.
Employing still life, landscape and architectural mediums as abstract pedestals for the projection of black attitudes, agency, and refinement."
