The chair in this piece symbolizes a role, authority, or a status. Everyone has a role according to their status or position and life is a process of solving the problems and tasks that stem from it. The red background defines what the color red normally represents, such as danger and warning, and I used candy, which is sweet and inoffensive, as the solution that we must find each time that red light flashes like a warning signal. The candy is medicine, i.e. it signifies the solution. This is a representation of the way I seek answers to the tasks that I?m confronted with.
