Item Description

IconCaretDown

I have always been attracted to natural elements as they portray strong emotions that somehow reveal another side of humanity and its indefinite power of control. The idea of how water relates to the depth of what the mind can perceive, and the fragility in concurring expressions. I was searching for a mode of escape and I found, and was inspired by, Elena Kalis’s beautiful underwater photography. Each painting subtly symbolizes the suffocation of a feminine figure (Mother Nature) as it continues to survive in the hands of humanity.

But, the need to recount these green forests became more prevalent to me as the ever-changing urban planning takes over vast lands over the years.

My first few painting series came upon with the study of feminine figures as the central theme, often portrayed as calmly drowning in underwater scenes; subtly equating them with the suffocating Mother Nature. Figures then turned into portraiture of the female facial structures, as I studied compositions of emotional expressions constructed by the human mind. Moving from the humanistic forms, I began scrutinizing all sorts of forms of nature, particularly water bodies and the forests, occasionally combining them with human or animalistic elements. Along the years, I found myself slowly documenting local flora and botanicals in my daily watercolor journal as they remind me of how similar they are to us anatomically, deconstructing and dissecting its’ body into their significant characteristics and vibrant hues.
