As an artist I have been exploring for a while now the association between figurative images from the natural world and words, characters and symbols. I consider the latter to have a special mystic, for we can see them for their conceptual significance but can also exalt their pictorial features. I often incorporate abstraction in my work as well, in the form of lines or color, to convey sheer emotion or a sentimental state. I believe these are all necessary elements in order to achieve a more encompassing depiction of my perception of things. When I stand before something that moves me I observe, I think, I feel. Therefore, the alternative use of diverse elements and techniques seems to me the only way to convey the many levels of perception at work when undergoing an experience.
