Flowing into reality

Flowing into reality

60 cm diameter, acrylics on canvas Existence flows on the waves of time and space, creating this mesmerizing dance of being and not being, of human and non-human, visible and invisible. This flow of life I tried to immortalize in this painting, with Sky melting into Earth and creating this soup of individuality.

Vivid dream

Vivid dream

60 x 60 cm, acrylics on canvas, framed With big admiration in mind for Van Gogh, him being one of the very first contacts that I had with the art world long before I started painting, automatically becoming one of the role models that I have for this creative skill, I ventured to incorporate his style in my vision of the world.

Soft pastels on grained paper, 25 x 20 x 2.5 cm (framed), ready made frame with protective screen not available Have you ever wondered what life is? What is actually taking place when we say ‘I am’ or when we look around and see a world of infinite capacity? Have you ever looked at the sky on a clear night and get a feeling of sadness mixed with reverence and awe? There is a marvelous thing indeed that we are alive on this Earth and that we get to experience life as human beings.

In the black of night.jpg

40 x 50 cm, oils on canvas, not available, framed The contrast between the known, our planet and its landscapes, and the unknown, the Universe all around Earth, is represented through colors. Something that becomes known to us starts slowly to loose its mystery, similar to a magician`s trick; while the unknown is still full of possibilities and our mind can run havoc.

Resolution

Resolution

80 x 80 cm, oils on canvas, not available How many a time did man consider his stuborness a virtue? Too many I would say and way too confident of it also. If one could let go of one`s decisions and ambitions, maybe a little life would pierce one`s tower of solitude and all that does not matter would crumble away.

Void

Void

40 x 30 cm, acrylics on canvas, not available Everything around us is mostly comprised of space. Even our bodies and the reality we see and consider as material, are but atoms kept together by strange forces. The colors that abashes one are an illusion created by light; so why wouldn`t all material things be just another illusion? Void reminds me of our lack of knowledge and the vastness of the Universe; every small dot is a Sun if not a agalaxy; a good example of how intricate All is.

Clar de Luna

Clar de Luna

60 x 50 cm, acrylics on canvas, not available For many a time the Moon, full of melancholy and wonder, was found in the hearts of artists and writers as their creations` motif. The reflection of the celestial object isa represenntation of man (water being a wordly substance) as a mirror for all the beauty the Universe has to offer. Being distorted it shows the flaws of men; but it can reach perfection if we could just 'calm our waters'.
