Reflecting in the Woods

Comment:

“This is one of my latest paintings that has been inspired by my walks in the woods next to where I reside. I live by a park that has a beautiful lake and many tall trees. Nature is a source of solace for me to meditate upon especially when I want to reflect on life and how our world is shaping. For me, nature brings much needed calm to my soul amid uncertain times.”

APRIL 2022 CATALOGUE

“This work highlights the discovery of many forms of trees that surround one within one’s environment. The painting presents a collaged photo of a tree framing the artwork. The linear tree with its long branches becomes almost like the first lines of a poem immersing the viewer into a visual work of poetry; while the floating tree evokes a surrealist dreamy take on the explorations of a green field from a mixed media perspective.”
