In the solo exhibition titled “Elevation” the works embody a sense of elevated elements through color and theme. Skyscapes within landscape and seascapes aim to elevate the viewer into a higher realm of consciousness along with attaining a sense of meditative enlightenment that transforms one towards a Zen state of peace and harmony. I consider my artwork as a form of visual poetry. My artwork is inspired by nature and the environment. The artwork intends to be a bridge that intersects the connectivity of art and the environment emphasizing the importance of living with nature and its benefits on humans. The artwork showcases a sense of identity of who I am as an artist: my hopes, aspirations and dreams. Blue is my favorite color due to the fact that I was born by the Mediterranean sea. Hence, I feel my love for the Big Blue has been engraved in me and imprinted in my vision and memory ever since I was a child. The paintings capture the essence of time, movement and memory in a lyrical and painterly way. Overall, The paintings are poetic in nature with a meditative take striving to generate feelings of re-energy, harmony and peace.
