aim to express an exuberance for life, through dynamic
forms and vivid saturated colors, inspired by the coexistence
of nature and humanity. With so much of our everyday existence
seeming tedious, I am moved to construct magical, utopian
fantasies to inspire myself and others.
I'm fascinated by the psychological experience as we struggle
towards attaining a life in bloom. Key to my own development
is "transformation", the journey through dark
and growth towards personal triumph. This recurring theme
is explored in a myriad of ways, sometimes through a realistic
or even surrealistic study of natural forms. Often referenced
are flowers and plants, whose vividly saturated hues appear
to glow, illuminating the radiance of life’s energy.
Geometric patterns of nature are mirrored, transforming
the earthly element into otherworldly visions.
Progressively, I've been abstracting figurative forms
to be only somewhat recognizable, so that one can partially
identify the subjects, still I take it to a more ambiguous
place where it can be openly interpreted. A few other
paintings are technically non-representational, yet they
still embody the dynamic transformative movements. Aside
from varying degrees of abstraction in form, I feel all
of my paintings address my passion for the elevation of
the human condition through nature.
