My paintings are an amalgam to the essential questions of life, "Who am I? Why am I here? What is this life about? How can I contribute to this world?" They are also a tribute to my cultural upbringing and emotional crosscurrents of my life.
I have been drawing and painting figures since childhood and I still do. My figurative art retains strong reference to reality of my own life and my thoughts, feelings and my identity. My thoughts and feelings created my life and I identified with them.
In 2014, I started working in an abstract expressionist style. My abstract paintings are mostly nonrepresentational. They are started without any preconceived ideas as opposed to my figurative work. Once I give permission to my creative self, my paintings develop in their own way and materialize. The paint takes charge. I take a role of vessel. This is not without conscious thought or intention. It is indeed the consciousness itself. I am allowing the whatever I am attached to leave, especially the thought of "I", "me", or "mine". I go beyond ego, and let I AM which is consiousnesss itself, emerge. Through opening myself to the emerging consciousious, I bring awareness to "Who I AM", "Why I AM here" and "What is this life about?"
In the end, all the intangible things transform in myself, into my figurative and abstract artwork. When I paint or draw, I bathe my head in the unknown and explore the unexplored, above all common sense! I pursue life my own way. It is with this perception that I want to effect the quality of the viewer.
