I am inspired by writings, music and artworks which evoke a sense of connection and timelessness. Intuitive process is the driving force in my most recent body of work where paintings are characterized by focus on repetition, organic shapes and fluidly applied colour. Regular periods of quiet and solitude are an essential component of my overall practice, with painting sessions serving as important meditations where one becomes at once both hyper-aware and lost in the process. These multi-layered paintings are the result of a continuing exploration of the blending of traditional elements of Eastern art (balance, simplicity, “essence”) with key elements of Lyrical Abstraction (process, repetition, spontaneous expression). Multiple layers of glaze, in conjunction with the use of metallic/iridescent pigments, allow each painting to reveal subtle compositional changes depending on the precise angle at which light hits the surface of the canvas. Some more abstracted than others, my paintings are infused with symbols, colours and shapes inspired by elements of nature.
