It all started with my keenness to be in touch with nature and to travel (hiking, bicycle and motorcycle touring, snorkeling, etc), this gave birth to a realisation in me that there is something more real than the physical world. I can vividly see, hear and feel nature's movements and they feel enjoyable, comfortable and soothing. Empty but full and time seemed to stop. Everything moves in harmony and lawful in its own chaos, fluctuating as if to show that there is something behind this physical universe. From this experience I realised that it's the spirit that controls the body and consciousness and not the brain. The spirit that can work together, harmonise and blend with nature (trans).
The awareness from that experience became the basis of my painting. Abstract is the word I use to express and relive my feelings when I become one with nature. The landscape (forest, lake, waterfall, etc) that appears is how I meld and harmonise with the abstract form. And the white light is a language that shows the happiness, serenity and truth that I have found, the reality of this life. To me, painting is a form of my gratitude for the experience I felt in nature. Painting is also a recall process of my adventures on canvas. To harmonise, be one with nature, for me that's the most important thing needed by humans... to rest.
