Nowadays, I  concentrate  on my feelings rather than on my studies of the beauty of mother nature and other subject matters.  I feel more in touch  with my emotions when I paint. I have created my series called ‘The Flow’.

In life, we are sometimes challenged with the weakness of our mind, body and spirit. If we are fortunate, new opportunities arise and we cannot help but to feel  liberated.

A new chapter of life begins and  this is the gift of life- to recognize that it flows. My FLOW series of paintings represents the  broad spectrum of feelings and  experiences that I have endured throughout my life…joy, love, sorrow, courage, fear, pain,accidents, diseases, death, friendships, family, faith… and hope. Life is always in a contrast state of flux. I have learned to take each day as it flows. We try to work hard for better lives…This FLOW of life is something that we cannot stop or control; it is  recognized and adopted as we live in it. This is the cycle of life….somehow, it flows and we move forward.

‚ÄčThe dramatic composition in my paintings is graced by the contrast of shades and textures. The light shades express the path to a brighter and more positive future, which is then juxtaposed by the dark shades that symbolize the overcoming of the struggles of life. The future of HOPE is expressed through my art. These choices of metallic colours, especially the gold and silver reflect my identity. They are very symbolic in that they  represent  positive energy to me. My father has spent over 30 years in the metal business. His research lab influenced and inspired me to use metallic colors in my unique flow paintings.

Art is perceived as the reflection of the individual artist’s life and his experiences. What I find more intriguing is that it can be personalized through the heart of each viewer. I hope the Flow series will rekindle emotions and  memories of unique experiences in your own life.
