Artist Statement

Introduction

As an artist, I explore the interconnectedness of themes such as life cycles, cultural backgrounds and experiences, and the concept of the elements of life. My art is about exploring the interconnectedness of these themes and how they shape our understanding of existence. I am currently working on three series of artworks: the Deconstructed series, the Lifecycle series, and the Elements of Life series.

Deconstructed Art Series

In my Deconstructed Art series, I question common meanings, expose cultural bias, and play with possible interpretations. By doing so, I aim to make the viewer see multiple perspectives and meanings. My paintings are meant to inspire an inner dialogue with the viewer, encouraging contemplation of their own relationship with the theme or subject, and how it compares to other perspectives. The emphasis is to grow mutual understanding and respect for different opinions.

Lifecycle Series

In my Lifecycle series, I depict the natural cycle of life through flowers and fruits. I find beauty in the continuous cycle of birth, growth, and decay, reminding us of the interconnectedness of all living things and the inevitability of change. Each painting captures a unique moment in the life of the flower or fruit, from the budding stage to the peak of bloom and finally to the withering and decay. It is a reminder to cherish the present moment and embrace the changes that come with time.

Element of Life Series

In my Element of Life series, I paint flowers with a colour scheme inspired by the classical elements of life - fire, water, earth, and air. Each painting represents one of these elements and explores the relationship between nature and the human experience.

Fire is associated with strength, activity, and life force. It is also seen as highly purifying and protective, consuming impurities and driving back the darkness.

Air is the element of intelligence, creativity, beginnings, and connection to the universal life force. It is an active element that constantly flows and moves, representing the breath of life.

 Water is the element of emotion and the unconscious, as opposed to the conscious intellectualism of air. It is one of two elements that have a physical existence that can interact with all of the physical senses.

 Earth is the element of stability, groundedness, fertility, materiality, potential, and stillness. It can also be an element of beginnings and endings, or death and rebirth, as life comes from the ground and then decomposes back into the earth after death.

Overall, my aim as an artist is to create "Meaningful Art for Thinking People." I hope that my works prompt viewers to contemplate their own relationship with the themes and subjects I explore, and to gain a deeper appreciation for the diversity of perspectives and opinions that exist in the world.
