For me, my art mirrors my deepest feelings or emotions at any given moment or a certain context. The emotions and the visual stimuli that led to the emotion coalesce and crystallize into the image that gets transferred onto the canvas. My theme differs from painting to painting and is the product of the sublimation of my thoughts and feelings in a given context. There is often a fusion of the past and the present, of myth and reality, of the ideal and the actual. Visions of the past coalescing with the hard reality of the here and now.
