“The Zephyrix is a mythical figure symbolising the tension between the restrictions of life – the mundanity, the struggles and sometimes evils of life – with the liberating creative expression of who we really are – our true selves.The piece endeavours to express the strain and colors of this dichotomy and the potential emergence of a newness of mind or metanoia”.
