Artist statements: Chroma
Chroma Series explores the relationship between color, light, and architecture through mixed media paintings, or light reflective sculptural panels—a sort of monolith with vibrant colors—that offer viewers an evocative sensorial experience. I have been fascinated with light all my life, as light has the ability to affect our life- I started experimenting with ways of reflecting light and refracting light
Effervescent, energetic, and fresh – The prismatic effects emulate a dream world of exaggerated and playful shadows- In my conceptual works in painting, photography as well as installations, I am investigating the effects of full-spectrum direct light within the context and limitations of materials that they are passed through, thus creating creative forms and compositions from the reflections, refractions and shadows created by the manipulative materials & forms.
Employing the physics of light and multi-dimensional layering, I play on the illusory perceptions and depth of the color space, rendering color fields, or color auras that radiate and glow, morphing and pulsating, transforming color theory from the realm of mere physics to something living, breathing and even spiritual.
Body of work encompasses drawing, painting, and installations that are characterized by a singular experimentation with the perception and experience of space, volume, and light.
“Primary aim as [an artist] is to reshape or change the spectator’s perception of the seen world. In short, my medium is not light or new materials or technology, but perception.”
