Inner Experience II, Oil on Canvas, 28 x 22 in, 2021

“Art resonates with humanity by making us slow down, pay attention and in the process bring the sometimes overlooked reality closer to us. It gives us a transcending understanding about life. In other words, Art magnifies reality and gives clarity to what we see and how we see life. Art enables us to see the world differently by speaking to the ultimate depth, allowing us to grasp the complexity in human experiences and reflect the ever changing human perspective. Art gives voice to the voiceless, inspires, energizes and shapes minds and societies. Art is the medium through which I create, add value and convey messages to people. I have found surrealism and realism useful in depicting my ideas, enabling people who view my works to grasp the message embedded in each piece. My most recent body of work are paintings of expressive wire figures, which is my way of describing a being and the countless energy that flows within each one of us. The various expressions of Art are a unifying force in bringing together people from diverse backgrounds to share a rare but meaningful experience in life. .”
