I believe the beauty in art lies in its ability to address the perpetual dualism within the cycle life. The ideas behind my work are inspired by issues from human society through observing the animal kingdom.
I choose to portray my ideas through paintings because the process allows me to visualize the fundamental truths that embody both beauty and catastrophe.
Accepting dualisms is a necessary step to provide the potential for renewal.
