IRKT (I-ru-ku-to)(Individual Relative K(C)ontradiction Theory is my conceptual design for artistry, logo and project name to pursue my creations. My interest arises out of the desire to pursue the concept of the self, exposing the contradictions, which exist internally and externally. I bring an overlooked third element to my artwork, expressed through the individual’s mind their values, and creative energies. In a world described through dichotomy, the purpose behind my artwork is to focus on finding and describing the "vagueness", which exists in these contradictions and in the mind of person. The concept of "contradiction" possesses considerable energy and exists between each of these elements. I am interested in discovering and exposing the individual or "self" that lies beyond these various contradictions, and to ascertain piece-by-piece elements that define one's raison d'e^tre.
