Bravata is part of the inaugural 'Outliers" group show curated by Atelier (
This abstract generative artwork explores the human experience of "bravata", a Portuguese word often translated into English as "bravado". Bravado is a sentiment we have when we put on a good face, or attempt to be brave in the face of something challenging. In that moment, beneath the surface, we meet ourselves exactly where we are: vulnerable, malleable, and forever subject to the currents of change. When we submit fully to this experience, there is something aquatic, organic and familiar, yet quite otherworldly that occurs: we sense that we are free falling, but when we can relax into it, we discover that there is no ground.

This work aims to capture the beauty, the messiness and the utter mystery of what it means to be human and deeply uncertain, yet somehow still hopeful.
