My works, in pure transparent watercolour, are my attempts to capture the essence of a particular moment, the intangible “something” that words otherwise struggle to define and that makes a moment profound. I believe that the intrigues of our environ are nothing but playful dances between light and shadow ……. physically and metaphorically. Therefore, successfully portraying the tug of war between light and shadow is essential for me to accomplish my goal as an artist.
I work in thin, translucent washes leaving some white spaces on the paper which enables certain areas of my work to glow while at the same time creating spatial depth. This tag of war between light and dark, between foreground and background, and the selective detail in a composition allow me to draw the viewer’s attention to a particular point of interest.
In the end, it is my goal for the viewer to experience the essence that I feel makes a moment worthy of depiction and which, otherwise, can hardly be described in words.
