Artist Statement

My goal as an artist is to capture the fundamental essence of beauty. The life force that permeates nature and runs through its veins. The mystery and at the same time assigned structure in nature that forms repetitive yet aesthetically tranquil visual themes. I try to capture the visual and spiritual intelligence in nature and abstractly put it in my art. In this way viewers of my art are innately familiar with these energies and calculated themes and therefore soothed when viewing my art. I aim to capture the elegance, intense detail and sophisticated forms in nature. My art just like nature shows fractals such as the twists and turns in a tree bark that also show the same detailed structuring in its leaves. It represents timeless shapes that equate in the microcosm and macrocosm of nature such as how a molecule can look so similar to the solar system. Furthermore, color is absolutely essential in my art. I use very bold and vibrant colors to invoke joy, passion and a strong sense of living presence. My color choices and placements of colors are very unconventional and original. When all is said and done, the wisdom of innate aestheticism is the fundamental driving force and purpose of my art.
