My work explores landscape, memory, and imagination through the medium of painting, primarily watercolor on paper and water-soluble oil on canvas. Beginning in moments of perception outside, the work is rooted in experiences of connection and identification with the natural world in various conditions. Using my own snapshots as source materials, I make multiple watercolor variations before moving to oil on canvas. Through this process, each snapshot is distilled and transformed into a new space bearing only a trace resemblance to its source. The resulting visual worlds, imbued with memories, dreams, and the spontaneity of painting, are landscapes, shelters for the imagination, and social realms where marks interrelate to build a dynamic and transitory whole.
