About

DIFFERENT CULTURES AND PEOPLE AND THEIR INTERPRETATIONS OF HAPPINESS AND LIFE IN GENERAL HAS BEEN MY MAIN INSPIRATION TO PURSUE ART AS MEANS OF DEMONSTRATING EMOTIONS ON CANVAS. COLOURS CAN TELL TALES. ABSTRACTION IS MY LANGUAGE TO EMPLOY THE COLOURS, SHAPES WITH DIFFERENT MEDIUMS AND TECHNIQUES TO TRANSFER EMOTIONS. I USE PAINTING AS A MEANS TO CAPTURE FRAGMENTS OF HUMAN NATURE AND ITS POSITIVE ATTITUDES TO THE WORLD OF HASTE, BRUTALITY.

MY STYLE PORTRAYS BOTH THE UNIVERSALITY OF HUMAN EMOTION AND THE SIMPLISTIC AND IMMEDIATE OF THOSE PASSIONS WHILE TRYING TO JOIN EASTERN AND WESTERN ART FORMS, TO AWAKEN THOSE UNIVERSAL EMOTIONS. MY WORKS EVOKE CONTRASTING AND EVEN CONFLICTING FEELINGS AND EXPERIENCES: HOPE AND DEATH, WEALTH AND POVERTY, JOY AND SADNESS, THE LIGHT AND THE DARK ASPECTS OF HOPE IN LIFE. THEY REFLECT THE AMBIGUITY AND FULLNESS OF HUMAN NATURE AND POWER OF HOPE.

WITH CHALLENGING TECHNIQUES, I HAVE EXPERIMENTED WITH ABSTRACTION, EXPLORING THE SIGNIFICANCE OF GOLD AND ITS LONG JOURNEY THROUGHOUT LIFE AND HISTORY. I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO CREATE A LUMINOUS ATMOSPHERE, TO REPRESENT HOPE AS THE STRONGEST ELEMENT.

EMBRACING GOLD ORIGINATES FROM MY DEEP LOVE FOR HISTORY. A TASTE FOR THE ANCIENT, A DESIRE TO LEARN ABOUT THE HISTORY OF OUR PREDECESSORS HAS ALWAYS ENLIGHTEN MY MINDS AND DRIVEN MY PASSION FOR HISTORY FORWARD.

ONE EVER-LASTING ELEMENT SINCE HAS BEEN DISCOVERED WITHOUT EVADING ITS SIGNIFICANCE. BY NATURE, IT TAKES MILLIONS OF YEARS FOR GOLD TO REACH THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH FOR NATURAL EXPLORATION. AND THIS IN ITSELF IS HISTORY FOR ME...
THE LONG HISTORY OF GOLD INFUSES SOME OF MY COLLECTIONS, A REFERENCE TO CELEBRATE THE HOPE MANKIND ANTICIPATED IN THE COURSE OF ITS HISTORY.

FOR ME GOLD IS NOT ONLY THE SHINY METAL THAT ENRICHES ALL IT COVERS AND CERTAINLY NOT ONLY THE PROOF OF SOPHISTICATION, WEALTH AND POWER. ITS TALE AND SIGNIFICANCE HAS ENCHANTED OTHERS AND ME FOR MANY YEARS AND IS NOW ENCAPSULATED IN THE ESSENCE OF MY LAST COLLECTION.
