In 2017 and 2018 many things happened in my life that made me think about the nature of things in this world, and how no experiences, good or bad, last forever and how quickly things can turn around, and how a peaceful existence is found through humility and compassion.
In my new series of paintings I touch on the ideas of impermanence and transiency in abstract form using the technique of oil-cascades in many color combinations and brush application. Nature plays a big role in my work and in my new paintings as one sees in the collaboration between its unpredictable forces and my meticulous control, as well as influencing my color selection to mimic the natural world and the four elements of earth, water, wind, and fire.
Each painting and corresponding title is one thought in a sea of thoughts in my exploration of natural ways and imagery to capture the ideas of change in thought provoking minimalistic form.
This new series is about plain reality but also about hope. I wish to remind people that in the bigger picture all things balance out and we should embrace all life with grateful hearts, as the universe will continue to ebb and flow as it has been all throughout time.
