I am delighted to present this series, as the theme of “waves and ocean” can help getting a glimp of a spiritual truth. In our interaction with, and participation within the world, we tend to identify with ourselves as waves. Being in constant motion, we don’t get much opportunity to realize our deeper nature. When however, movements cease to be, the consciousness can free itself from limitations and be oceanic.
For most of the paintings belonging to this series I looked for a way to express wave patterns. After a lot of experimentation, I ended up with a unique technique of applying metal leaf, gold or palladium, to shape the bright foamy wave lines. Depending on the intensity and angle of the light illuminating the canvas, the waves will become alive and shiny or subdued.
