TEAR THE SKIN OF REALITY!
It takes more than a lifetime to comprehend the reality of living. It takes more than that to live for the quest of sensation. To live is to die in the blink of a second – a thing that remains a mystery of the unknown.
We cannot contain any form of emotion as eternal; they are all a flow of thought, identified as sorrow or greatness. The chess game of life and death is an impulse of that intrinsic moment, so let us make love to emptiness: fill it up with elements that thrill us with gelatine of despair and mold it into lines that speak in its own terms.
It is a multitude of association of thoughts and visions. This grows out of my physical and mental experiences. I depict simultaneous sensations mingled with reality of the seen and unseen. I hold onto a line on the surface of the canvas as it grows and connects like musical energy. My infinite information of living contemplates like a trumpet player playing melody and sound traveling through the tunnel of thoughts.
Painting stands still but thought moves within the canvas, like a thinker fixed on the ground and his mind chasing his dreams. It is a visible, abstract world with tangibility but not surreal, because of the very human aura my paintings hold. I have no specific story to tell but the story created through me as I render lines. Lines give me shelter as a mirror that holds my visibility, but it does more by reflecting ideas, structures and objectivity.
