I have always been interested in colors and the nature of shapes. My studies on Josef Albers' Interaction of Color and many contemporary Abstract painters and Minimalists have tremendously helped me in my creative process.
Constantly exploring colors emotions and interactions, I examine this relationship when forms emerge and break down into different elements. Each piece is about evoking inner peace and cosmic consciousness, depending on the particular moment or state of mind. They are subtle and quiet; and I use matte finish and brilliant color combinations to visually represent the layers of life, webs of memories, and the complexities and reflections of my personal sentiments with people and nature. Through the process of making, I am creating an embodied understanding of sensuality, vibrancy, and enchantment in colors as they radiate on the surface and with the surrounding.
In current series, I am inspired by the San Francisco landscapes and colors. Living in the northeast of the city, adjacent to Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, have enabled me to continue exploring and mapping out my personal memories and narratives with a mix of urban subculture.
