Hugo Racz:Tabula Rasa

Tabula Rasa - accurately describing both my current outlook, as well as my artistic structure in one concise phrase.

The Latin term tabula rasa translates in English to “clean slate”, which refers to starting again.

Having finished high school last year, I feel as though I have moved onto a new chapter in my life, my routine has totally changed and my mind is fresh, it’s as though I am starting again; a clean slate.

The term also specifically refers to a scraped tablet from which writing has been erased. From a creative perspective this solely relates to most of my art, in which I often scrub out entire sections of the image to either start again or simply cover over with more paint. By removing or crossing out words and lines, they become more meaningful in their absence.
