The beauty and symmetry of nature one sees in a forest bathed in green and gold can only be marveled at.The deep but subtle hues, the many textures, the depth of green all around is a sight to breathe in that does wondrous things to the soul. Perhaps we should never attempt to describe it, only revel in it as nature intended.
This work tries to explore the face behind the face , the hidden layers beyond the obvious.For what we sometimes take to be the reality is only a hint of something else to be unveiled later or sometimes never.What do we see when we see anything?And what happens when we get a glimpse of an alternate reality? Do we get a sense of vertigo, or a feeling that life is elsewhere?
This painting captures the mood of an inner search that is fraught with interruptions, a journey where the roads start and end with interruptions and do not often meet.The struggle lies in choosing the roads to take and the paths to not, knowing full well that in this transformative process the journey you start will not be the journey you end with.
You find yourself in the middle of a dream, you are taking a walk in the park with the sun at its zenith, where everywhere you see it is green and fresh.You wake up, look out the window; it is high noon and the day is still young!
This work is inspired by the painful process of healing that has to go through the stages of breaking and bleeding first.For there is no rebirth into a new reality before the darkness of death and destruction, till we see the light slowly shining through the crevices and through the rips and tears.
Fury, anger, hellfire, brimstone … all make up the path that the mind obsessed with desire and loss must cross..
This painting is the first of a series that explores the mindscapes that chase the undulations of movement, coincidences and serendipity and the resultant chaos that still points us to the heart of the matter.
