Artist Statement : my new works are centred around the balances between symmetry and asymmetry , abstract and representationalism, nature and geometry, light and shadow. I guess you could say I'm obsessed with the paradoxes in contrast. The artists who inspire me the most are Georgia O'keeffe and Wassily Kandinsky. Their influence is evident in every painting.
Currently I'm toying with the notion that #everythingisaflower in my work, because for me every painting begins with a petal. Even if it looks like a landscape, it's not! It's a petalscape........ xo
"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not." - Georgia O'Keeffe.
