After my solo exhibition in August 2021, I took a short break from the studio with the idea of coming back with fresh new ideas. It was easier said than done but I think I am back on the right path and ready to move on. I am constantly trying to push my work andContinue reading “Experimental”

Watching the Stars Watching You
A small part of how this painting came about.
Making Space for Pink and Order
This is one of the fun parts of making the painting. One of the expressive parts for colour, as the values form from lights into darks. It’s almost like the colour is dancing along with the under drawing’s lead.
Chaos Without Order
Current times made me re-look at this painting that I painted a small few weeks back. Art and music are more than ever so important right now. I don’t want to mention the, what I think is now the new ‘C’ word. There is too much negativity out there right now and these times areContinue reading “Chaos Without Order”

The creaks vary in levels of sound and speed depending on the weather conditions and theContinue reading “Soundwaves of a Creaking Tree”
The Last Winter Chime
I unintentionally painted this entire painting upside down. I came to a point were I didn’t want to go any further with it. It was just ‘done’, in my mind but there was something really bothering me about where it came to. I turned it upside down, and it seemed to work immediately. How funny..
I enjoy how colours talk to each other and the challenge of making them work within one shared space. Line and texture fall into that same venture at some point and pose similar challenges. I never really know where a painting is going until almost the end. I can’t usually tell when, until I comeContinue reading “Communication”
A large scale work in progress.. It’s a question of what survives and what must give in.
A Way to Equilibrium
Finding balance in every way is relevant to how we live and exist.
For all who have loved and lost, bereavement floats on strange waters..
