After The Storm

“After The Storm” displays a close-up of calm blue water. It is a moment of peace and hope. Natural causes are irremediable, and with so much pollution, it is not surprising that disasters must occur. Storms can cause major damage, just like tsunamis and earthquakes. 

The storm in 2012 caused much damage to homeowners in the New York area. We got lucky, and our home suffered minor repairs.

I blended shapes with fuzzy patterns, marking the end of turmoil. Moreover, the blue is softened with white, conveying the feeling of a past storm through movement. A couple of bubbles here and there balance the composition. This inspiration came from Okamoto Arts, which was exhibited at Perlow Gallery. The early years of my apprenticeship influenced my technique, and I blended them according to certain events that I felt confident about. New York is a cosmopolitan area where many artists ignite the imagination.  Or so I picked up that moment of the storm in my mind in a quiet, relaxed moment.
 Assimilation and adaptation are two words that are different from imitating and copying them as they are. I grabbed the other contemporaries’ concepts, and the feeling transformed into my experience. In short, there is a voice in me that pulls me to interpret what I saw through this watercolor medium.

The Element

The element steps into a realm where storytelling dissolves in perfect harmony. The focus is on matter in space. I delve into my consciousness, envisioning the universe, and transform it into a cube.

In the technical concept, the title stands for the elements in the space.

Derived particle elements exist as nonsolid shapes. Since they have no internal structure, they do not occupy much space outside. Therefore, they can move faster than light, and I found a meaning to portray the element. I released oil pigments with turpentine and spread them onto the paper.  The image feels like it just landed and is suspended in the dark space

In stark contrast, the ‘element’ exudes an air of calm assurance, an embodiment of certainty that no harm will occur in this process. Its vivid strokes invite us to embrace life’s complexities with open hearts and minds.

Although the mind sheds biases and preconceived notions, we can not escape watching it in its purest form.  The artistry process has become a contemplative journey of simplicity.

Where did this transformation begin? We know for sure it all started millions of years ago. Along with the proper aspect of life and the true nature of all forms.  Developing compassion and wisdom through our life experiences. Along with loving-kindness, empathy, and equanimity (mental quietness). We grow, keep evolving, and live our lives with meaning and good faith. 

In short, the ‘element’ is not just a physical substance but a profound metaphor for a living journey. It is the bridge on a continuous path within our transitory nature. We accept it as an infinite road full of beauty and tragedies where the mind celebrates the joy of being alive.

The Dancer

The Dancer is the next painting in a series called “Hope.” Here, the tree is rejoicing, passing through obstacles. Thanks to environmentalists and people who are keeping our environment safe. A tree is essential in keeping us safe, for it cleans our air and provides shading comfort. Visualizing an object is fascinating; we are attracted to movement, color, subject, and simplicity to be happy with what we admire. Then, the tone defines the whole picture. Correlation between shapes and forms adds flavor to the main object.

However, the symbols follow their form; every curve and straight line echoes a thought. And there lies the story of where the dancer’s idea came from.

I have been experimenting with layers, and no matter the subject or media, the more you add, the more attractive it is. Nonetheless, we must be careful not to overdo it. Foresight: Our mind bombards us with so many layers of ideas that unbalance a color, turning it into a painful sight. The best answer is to simplify and return to the first theory—intuition helps, too.

The dancer represents the female in nature. We have the music inside, indeed. Then, the transformation into a tree is an allegory to her fructose life. She is picaresque and arrogant, full of life at every step. The fruits she carries on her bark are rectangles, circles, ovals, and flowers. They all dance to her tempo and compass.

To conclude, let’s hope every tree will be saved in the world and for all the people and fauna. Mother nature opens their minds and appreciates life as a sacred ground.
