Energy and Flow Acrylic Paintings April 2018 - January 2019
"For me as I work, every second of feeling brings brush strokes on top of each other. The result is brushwork completed over a period of time and days. Later, I find that no change is possible because at that time, the finished work is locked. It's not possible for even me to duplicate the piece – because that time and the feelings of that exact moment are past. And tomorrow will be another day to start work again – and see where we will go.
The common theme for all my works is energy – energy in nature and the world around me, in moving colors that show power, in the inner life of my subjects. I seek to unveil the mysteries and beauties of the universe. Often, people ask me who my inspiration was in my artistic career. Actually, I can't name anyone. This doesn't mean I don't like other artists. In fact, I've liked many other artists work in my life. But I just started digging in my own self to find me and start the expressing, the experiencing, the expansion."
