Becc Ország’s Sanctuary is an exploration of paramnesia, in which fantasy is confused with reality. This new series of drawings presents an idyllic yet perplexing world in which the profound coexists with the perturbed. Rorschach inspired landscapes reflect upon themselves creating meditative and sublime scenes that invite the viewer into a state of self-reflection, encouraging autonomy and dissuading instruction within their unresolved narratives. Ország draws upon an interest in the universal longing for a heaven or utopian land, combined with man’s inherent need to be lead and belong, to idolize and revere, and it’s shaping of us as individuals and a society.
