Continuing my endeavor to paint luminous realism in my figurative oils, while still somehow subtly combining the aesthetics of the painterly excitement in impressionist colour, this piece incorporates the contouring line impressions throughout the figure that I have been exploring in recent works such as Original Sin Rebirth, Binary Movement and Backlite ..
These contour lines also give me the opportunity to incorporate a subtle aesthetic representation of underlying theorized fundamental forces of nature like the supersymmetric string theory.
I experimented with simultaneous warm and cool lighting effects on the model, and the composition was somewhat inspired by Euan Uglow's symmetrical minimalist figurative paintings..
Geometric repetition with the figure and throughout the composition was used to create harmony and balance, and I strived to create a tactile and exciting piece with the textured surface and by contrasting flat hues with the high realism of the woman's figure..
'Child of Mars' simply captures a future moment in time on Mars, of a mature tellurian progeny, and zer prosaic moment of wistful contemplation.

I have been incredibly lucky to be able to create art as my professional vocation for more than 15 years. Being able to explore and delve into this passion deeply full time, is a gift I am continually grateful for...
Style: I tend to lean towards realistic renderings with abstraction coming into play to hopefully create exciting & mentally stimulating pieces.. The human form is one of my favourite subjects at the moment but I am on a continuous journey of creative discovery in style and content..
Inspiration: Being of Anglo-Indian descent and growing up in the urban multi racial & cultural, sunny shores of Malaysia has undoubtedly shaped my worldview and driven me to always try to represent diversity in my work as much as possible. My conceptual pieces are usually developed and inspired by what lurks within the pages of my second love - books, and the inevitable influences of the unique and 'exciting' times we live in.. I see the persistent honing of my artistic skills as integral to creating, and exploring and developing my skills in differing mediums and techniques is one of the many amazing and ever inspiring parts of the process.
Distinctions: Featured & interviewed on Hypp TV 'The Art Gallery' in 2013, which features some of the most promising emerging & established artists in Malaysia.
Graduated from Lim Kok Wing University College (2004) with a Diploma in Visual Art but has been on the whole, mostly self taught.
