“Levitations”, 24×36″ mixed media on canvas was selected by Julia Kwon the juror of the Art League August 2019 show. In this painting I’ve introduced a perspective grid and an arch to compliment the organic marks and to add a sur-real depth to the abstract—here my focus has been on “push and pull” inspired by Hans Hoffman. I am hoping that by adding the texture and grunge as well as the third dimension, I’ve managed to push the “push and pull” effect beyond what is created by the colors. I am still relying on my intentional imperfections to trigger the viewers imagination.
“Equinox”, 48×36″ mixed media on canvas was selected by Fanna Gebreyesus the juror of the Art League July 2019 show. Intuitive painting has always been a spiritual journey for me—discovery of the unknown or subconscious. Inspired by Hilma af Klint’s spiritual early abstract paintings and the perspective revolution of the Renaissance period. My goal has been revival of a distant antiquity—ancient sun worships at a time that we are so out of alignment with the nature and environment.
