Oil and acrylic painting on canvas and mixed media works on paper


Time, thoughts, layers of memory, and eureka all come into play while making the work. What is the nature of mind? It has taken a long time to get to this point, but I feel re-energized by the move. The aesthetic of the work carries my voice, and with time, echoes my mind. The connectedness of all elements is reflected by diverse handling of the paint’s layered surface, which alludes to the formation or destruction of random and conscious sequence. Paradigms of structure and change lay at the base of all experience.
