I know you are there, not next to me but does distance have any meaning anymore? The shine in your eyes, brighter than the stars, the sound of your voice over the Moon, so beautifully wrapped.. We talked, we chat, it goes much further than words... You got into my emotions, we share feelings and you managed into my secret garden, you keep visiting me, and it seems that I am floating above reality.. Is this real? or am I just dreaming? Does the course of life have a lesser meaning? Even though I can still hear the waves roll on the sand I am looking at the stars and the music of the sea brings you in sight, it's the magic of these days, the magic of your words, it's bigger than you think, it goes beyond my reach, it's everywhere. And it keeps growing... Really happy that finally my work takes over the confinement of the canvas and extends through the outside world. It brings another dimension in sight and opens a bigger door of perspective.I moved into a new house recently and decided to make a small garden in my kitchen with a light blue wall as the back ground. A touch of a more natural setting inside my life ( I spend quite some time in the kitchen as I love cooking). The synthetic grass I use was some left over from the kitchen and was rolled in a corner, so I decided to use it for art and it really brings a nice touch around the painting, a more natural feeling in the house, a bit of green grass, it's a more gentle feeling, still completely a full part of the artwork, I have to say I Love it. This new house really felt like a new start in my Life and yes it really seems that it is ! An expansion of the previous work, Thriving, growing, expanding, oh boy what a positive step !
Originally, the idea was to reflect about a polar bear swimming in a sea with no icebergs, the worrying changes in climate and the challenges ahead of us. The boat floating in an empty sea, as we deplete the oceans, as we pollute and kill marine life.. So the Dodo is covering up the little sleeping boy to make sure that at least he will still live within the dream. Sleeping under the blanket of innocence. But what is it gonna be like when he grows up? He is gonna turn at us and ask questions. Why did we let this happen? Why did we sit still, knowing everything was slipping very dangerously and we did nothing? Why did we keep the blind consumption knowing pertinently that it was destroying the planet.His mother is taking support on lines of "What are we gonna tell them?" Her baby. His future.The two planets are there to remind us we are just a grain of sand lost in the Universe and still we take for granted this beautiful planet we live on. Look at the beauty. The sound of the waves rolling on the sand. The reflection of the moon rising over the ocean. The purity of Life itself.The smoking islands reflect where I live. Sitting on a burning furnace called the Ring of Fire.. pumping under our feet and spiting smoke through one of the many calderas around us. It's exciting
There is a saying "Good players create their own luck" and surely it couldn't be more appropriate as it is all in our head. As observers, we are involved with the creation of our own reality. Reality could even be seen as a mental projection of our thoughts, therefor the universe a mental construction. So do we restrain our self within the confinement of our limitations or do we decide to expand our experience to a further realization of the self? How beautiful to be a dreamer.And even if I am alone in my fish bowl and it is absolutely wonderful to dream about that Big Golden Fish floating in its inner peace..In the center of Manhattan, at Pershing Square, the sea drops me on a shore of blues, with the moon to remind me that yes, I am free to be. To be a dreamer..I'm out of my bowl to expand my vision and to have fun.So expect more to come coz I am flying a rocket and I see no landing in sight!Sure, Love is AllAnd it's all there....
Working on a project where I want to paint the re-incarnation of my dog in a different style, I tried this approach first to understand the geometric proportions of a character, and the essential lines in the composition.The Synthetic grass has been painted in black, and is part of my new series where synthetic grass comes in between the linen passe-partout and the frame.
