FOUR SEASONS FROM WITHIN SERIES
While I was creating this series there was so much in my life that was happening and many aspects of how I lived were transforming. The world in many senses was evolving around me. All my emotions—the happiness, but also the sadness—were painted into this series. Four Seasons from Within is a visual representation of the transformations and challenges each season of the year presents in our lives. Each season of the year will evoke different emotions, interactions, and challenges for the viewer.
STRUGGLES OF PEACE SERIES
I first became interested in exploring the Struggles of Peace theme through an artistic perspective so as to better understand the impact that a process of peace has in the lives of individuals and in the environment. As I began painting these relationships I discovered the process of peace involves three main categories: Basic Struggles, Specific Struggles, and challenge Struggles. Each of these categories of life pertains to the different issues developed from our society, the environment, and our human emotional responses. The colors explored in this series reflect my stance on each of the three main struggles. My expectation is that my audience will bear witness to these responses I expressed and feel the same impact.
WEB OF LIFE SERIES
Our lives and the workings of the world as they pretains to modern times are all governed by technology. From an artistic perspective, I explored my feelings on undertsanding the world’s present and future survival through the use of webs. In using the dripping technique I was able to demostrate the different webs of our lives. The connections I examined were about the relations found between humankind, our emotions, how we support one another, and how humanity’s affect on violence and destruction plays a part in our roles of society and family. My hope is that my painting’s message will invite the viewers to draw their own conclusions about the webs of our lives and how what we do and say affects us as individuals, but also the world.
