My goal as a visual form creator is to establish connection with essence
Possible roads one can take and how far it can take you on your way to a complete picture.
- Philosophy 50% 50%
- Science 80% 80%
- Art 90% 90%

I chose art as a means to reaching my goals, as science and philosophy have certain obstacles and would not provide jumping points for my imagination to roam.
Science is too analytical and is concerned too much with parts that it can never reach the whole as it is always discovering the new parts to analyze.
Philosophy is too abstract, and lacks physical components that will ground it directly in our life.
Both science and philosophy are limited with rational thoughts and pretend that it is all there is in this world and this can quickly take somebody to insanity or even inhuman behaviors as we can see repeat in history from time to time.
We need the art to connect us to the macro level, the creator level, to tuch aspects we do not rationally understand but are none the less real and play a role in our lives.
Looking for Harmony
Harmony in my interpretation is a balance between meaning and form. As long as the form is representative of the essence inside, it is harmonious and it fulfils it’s purpose.
Exploring the full circle by applying oil paint in meaningful ways and presenting intimate scenes of light and shadow, taking liberties, skipping over opinions and presenting my authentic experience.
