Convergence & They Move Mountains

These two paintings reflect on my past work, while revisiting elephants as a symbolic element in my artwork - first explored in my "Golden Elephant Series" (2014), which examined the relationship between sentimentality and symbolism. Elephants invoke concepts of memory, patience, wisdom, stability - elements artists often utilized to create their paintings. Memory and wisdom being the intellectual elements needed to understand art and compose meaningful work, while patience and stability are the physical elements need to carry out the sometimes difficult task of creating a work of art. "Convergence" visually expresses coming full circle. Reflecting on the growth of my artwork, while also taking a moment to acknowledge what has remained unchanged. "They Move Mountains" expresses continued development and change, merging some old ideas of symbolism into photogenic abstraction - a visual concept I began to explore in recent years.

Tunnel Vision (diptych)

These paintings explore the idea of memory and sentimentality. In a world that changes swiftly all around us there is a tendency to hold onto something of the past to keep ourselves grounded and centered. But our nostalgia is deceptive, as memories also change. They morph with different events and fade with time, until they appear more like a foggy dream rather than a lived experience. With these paintings I try to depict a memory in motion. One that is changing as the result of external forces but hasn’t yet been completely lost.
