ARTIST STATEMENT   Energy, emotion and organic cosmic elements are subjects I really deliberate over. My work has always been about tapping into the free spirit within. The Earth & Sky elements are the main focus of my paintings. The Balance of both! All is one, one is All... My improvisational painting techniques, which blend ambient movements with cosmic freeforms , has set me on my own path. My paintings are a composition of mixed media : Oils, acrylics, watercolors, charcoals, clays & pastels, organic botanicals & quartz crystals are just to name a few. My freehand brushstrokes are applied on canvas like icing. Layers and layers of smooth, cosmic hues, with lots of blues, greens, earth tones and drips of white are meshed together in organic shapes and textures. .

      

Recently, I have been gathering color palettes and energy from my recent journeys . My art helps me to express the energy and  emotions that I feel inside. “I see beauty in the most simplest things in life”. The energy of the locals, the spices, the colors, the history, and of course the wonderful magic of nature & cosmos that surrounds them.

When I mesh all theses elements, I come up with a organic energy sphere, kind of like an aura of the place I have been.

“The eyes are the windows to the soul I want others to see the energy I feel thru my paintings.

But as my journeys expand so does my work, always finding new ways create my pieces of ambient abstract art.

 

Om Shanti \
