When you feel that you will never be good enough, you will die sad. I will fucking die sad bc my hope for ever being good enough has eroded away like the cliffs you can see through the windows in your home.
Looking at the quiet, still paintings of Romanian artist Flavia Pitis, one gets the sensation that something wicked is looming on the horizon. Dimly lit with a chiaroscuro effect, the works present solitary children and sometimes adult women blissfully playing with floating objects and dolls, seemingly unaware of the ghostly ambiance surrounding them. Much like the scene before a big scare in a horror movie (when it’s tempting to scream “Don’t go over there!” at your TV), Pitis’ works uphold a fragile silence that might be broken at any moment. Take a look at some of her works below, images courtesy of Flavia Pitis.
