A selection of works by twin painters Eru Arizono and Emu Arizono AKA Hamadaraka. The artist duo use a variety of tools to capture different aspects of their existence, from dreams, temperature and humidity to the echoes of words and other noises around them. For Hamadaraka, painting is a form of communication or idioglossia – a private language they use to convey an imaginary realm between the visible and the invisible:
“We believe that the paradise we envision resides in the space that exists between the real world and the imagined world. Both are visible worlds, but the puzzle-like process of combining the sensations we experience while painting, our emotions of reality, and the stories and lines of realistic creatures that appear, to materialize the creatures we believe living in paradise, is the most sacred and enjoyable time for us.
