MFA ’23 Fine Arts 2D
The landscape reflects the ever evolving-relationship between nature and mankind. Growing up, I developed a close bond with nature as a place of play and rehabilitation. I see it as a physical environment and a living entity with its own spirit and personality. Using paint, I capture the moments and places that have held significance in my life, even if they are often overlooked by others. The flora takes on a persona as if it has its own consciousness and emotions. I seduce and transport the viewer, allowing them to immerse themselves in my painted world.
My art is not only a reflection of my deep love for nature, but it also serves as a means to bring awareness to its beauty and mystique. I hope to encourage others to see the world around them with a fresh perspective, and to form their own deep bond with the natural world. The collection of oil paintings within my thesis exhibition is a rediscovery and celebration of the wonders and enchantment of nature, as well as a visual representation of my relationship with the natural world.
