ROOTED, was created to appreciate a minimalist living, a soul nourishment amidst the world we live in; seeing the beauty and connection in nature, people and places that come along the way.
My visits to multiple gardens, forests and encounters with other artists during an art residency in France has shifted my color scheme this collection. My serpentine lines depict the idea of roots, how we all have roots, be it nature or humans and how we are all connected and rooted in ways I seem to feel yet we seem to forget. Most floral paintings and tree barks are from my imagination, the brush strokes and colors are a depiction of my feelings of how we take nature for granted. Most characters and rooms that I show in my work are also an exaggeration to the reality.
I tried to convey the experiences we go through in life and the way humans are destructing the environment, by illustrating it through the twisted lines to show how in the end we are all intertwined together.
