UNTOGETHER is a series from Hong Kong concerned with Elizabeth's personal exploration of her solitude among the millions. The viewpoint of the world’s most dense and vertical metropolis showcases a found quietude painted with a pastel and atmospheric palette. The thoughts surfacing in the work question the stance of loneliness within a city and if solitude can be found. Visual relationships pertaining to architecture, landscape, urban planning and spatial relationships, whether it is between strangers on the street or a lonesome bench for three, all found scenes initiate an introspective conversation with oneself. Minimalism, graphic lines and concentration of color is what connects the imagery with Hong Kong’s colorful brilliance. “The sought after solitude by the people of Hong Kong and I--the very thing that separated us--was the very thing that connected us. Our worlds will forever be apart but in our untogetherness I found a security I had not known could ever live inside of me.” Solitude can be sought after in urban centers worldwide despite immense populations. Untogether is the beginning to seek out the silence in the city.
