Depth and Emergence

 

This series heavily focuses on the influence of time and its effects on objects. The interrelation between time and the inevitable transformation of material, such as weathered doors and walls, is a source of inspiration for me. Imprinted by the beauty of experience, these surfaces parallel the depth and layers of the human existence. 

 

Especially in this series, I work in an additive and deductive manner, layering and removing coats of paint from the canvas, building and then scraping away at it, in order to reveal the hidden colors and textures beneath.

For me, this series of paintings communicate strength and vulnerability. Like a lotus flower emerging from the mud, my work acts as analogies of the human condition: the hardships and triumphs, the darkness and luminosity.
