Monachopsis 

(n.) the subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place, as maladapted to your surroundings as a seal on a beach—lumbering, clumsy, easily distracted, huddled in the company of other misfits, unable to recognize the ambient roar of your intended habitat, in which you’d be fluidly, brilliantly, effortlessly at home. (Koenig, 2012)

There is not feeling like feeling safe at home. Whatever home may mean to you, I hope this painting can bring you a comfort and a beauty that feels like home.

Monachopsis is the only painting of its kind in the TIERRA Collection. Fluid blues, turquoises and golds peep through a worn gold textured layer. The gold morphs to the light of its habitat, while the blues shine comes in and out depending on what angle you are looking from.
