Series of Experimental Collections: Acrylic Paintings

Artist Statement

My paintings blur the boundaries between impressionism and the semi-abstract until they become a synthesis of the two. My art centers not just on political issues, but on culture, religion, and environmental issues, as well. Approach to my work varies, depending on what I hoped or have in mind to achieve. Most times, when it comes to painting, I prefer alla-prima and pallet knife techniques, but sometimes brush technique as well. The alla-prima process is a way for me to play with my ideas. The pallet knife allows me to create unique patterns in my paintings. The figures in my paintings, most times, are semi-abstract, showing the beauty and unfitness of humans.
