ARTIST STATEMENT 2023
I explore a connection between contemporary art and spirituality.
Over a period of 5 years I have spent six months in Rome to research on the painting the spiritual.
I draw on spiritual and mystical traditions in my work, exploring themes related to consciousness, the divine, and the nature of existence. Often it reflects a personal spiritual practice and abstract exploration of the spiritual realm.
Abstract painting, sculpture, drawing and text are mediums for exploring existential questions about the nature of reality, the self, and the universe, which I believe can be deeply spiritual in nature. The use of color and form can convey spiritual and mystical experiences, inviting the viewer to connect with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose.
Overall, the relationship between contemporary art and spirituality is complex and multifaceted, and can vary widely in expression depending on the the medium.
In my more recent paintings I am exploring ideas about the abstract painting and spirituality.
An investigation through practice. The intuition is a method to paint color and form in expressive gestures.
