In the beginning there
was keen observation for things in nature.
Butterflies, sea creatures, cuttlefish,
birds, rocks, trees, and leaves are examples.
The sea, sky and ocean are still major influences
since spending early years surrounded by
rich blue hues. Color and chroma alike are
essential in my painting and often coexist
to convey my visual interpretation.
Patterns serve a prime
role in the process. How patterns evolve
in nature. Also, how we perceive, interpret,
use them and how they impact or shape our
lives. Textures derived from patterns, juxtaposition
of patterns, or juxtaposing patterns and
surface imagery, as surface is significant
in the conceptual approach. These aroused
interest in studies and discoveries such
as geometry, optics and fractals. The paintings
represent my attempt to create cohesion
with nature’s patterns and how we induce
or deduce patterns. Light is emphasized
to enhance brilliance in color, pattern,
texture, and surface.
Color, chroma, pattern,
texture, juxtaposition of surfaces, and interpretation
of nature influence my journey.
