Artist Statement

In my artistic journey, I explore the abstract world, translating its ethereal beauty and intricate design onto canvas. Inspired by nephomancy, I delve into the divination of clouds, light, and the chaos of space and beauty. Through art, I express my vision, believing in its transformative power to challenge norms and evoke deep emotions. Authenticity, empathy, and inclusivity guide my art, shedding light on social issues and promoting justice. Creating captivating and unique pieces allows me to translate my awe and admiration onto canvas.

Art has become my chosen healing medium, enabling me to express my vision and emotions in ways that transcend the limitations of words. Using resin and alcohol inks, I capture the vibrant fluidity of the cosmos, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the mesmerizing dance of colours and textures. Painting becomes a profound connection, where emotions freely flow onto the canvas. I aim to evoke chaos, passion, vulnerability, and liberation, creating space for introspection and dialogue.

When I paint, I enter a profound concentration and connection, accompanied by various musical genres. Time loses its hold as emotions flow freely onto the wooden canvas. In this state, I experience a kaleidoscope of feelings: chaos, passion, vulnerability, and liberation. I aim to evoke similar emotions in others, creating a space for introspection and dialogue amidst the chaos.

Envisioning the future of art, I see boundless creativity embracing new technologies and pushing the boundaries of traditional mediums. Artists will challenge norms, provoke emotions, and question the status quo. Through my unique creations, I bridge the gap between art and the cosmos, igniting inspiration in viewers’ hearts.
