Fire in the Sky

I took my camera out again the other night with eager eyes full of hunger, indulging upon our night skies. I was so overwhelmed yet again by the magical light show of wonder as I explored it with such incomprehension. It is because of these moments, which I have experienced throughout my life from as early as my childhood, that I view the world and life’s way from a zoomed out kind of perspective.

My paintings are influenced by this and it has come as a surprise more than anything, as it was not intentional that I am in a certain way re-creating maps of my own footprint on this planet, both physically on my walks and in experiences life has thrown at me.

Like trees that defy gravity reaching up to the stars, they are not too dissimilar to us and whats out there. Enjoy the skies and look up more! They are the same skies all round our planet connecting us all in some small way. I never feel alone on a clear night sky.
