In a world of sorrow, struggles and pain, flowers bloom even then, Series 3
“She treated hope like flowers, grew a garden in her mind, and even on the darkest days, from her hope, the flowers still bloom and the sun still shines.”
I use flowers and natural growth as a metaphor to represent life accomplishments in the face of adversity. Flowers only grow from the darkness of the soil. This piece`s aim is to embrace the past and celebrate the new person I have become as a result of the challenges encountered.
I hope this art piece to inspire and remind people of their own achievements and celebrate the journey of transformation.
This painting can be considered a living landscape and this dynamism is achieved through the painting of botanical forms – flowers, leaves, tendrils, landscapes, microcosms – in elaborate layers of oil paint, that come together to form tableaux of shiny, velvety, and rippling textures.
In my work, I love to explore the potential of the paint becoming a life form and a source of energy. Organic shapes of all colours have erupted across the surface. I have created a number of techniques unseen in any other artist’s work, including the use of unconventional tools instead of brushes and also highly elaborate painting techniques using my own designed machines to manipulate paint. If you look closely you will see that I have used quite a complex technique to paint. First I have created structures from paint to stop other layers from falling down. Each layer is supported by another layer of paint securing to a degree the painting from having the paint falling off. The process is quite architectural and engineering from the point of the use of my unconventional machinery to manipulate the material of paint and create intriguing surfaces on the canvas.
