When I was a little child, strongly believed came from the sea.
Would spend long hours submerged. Holding to the fisherman’s boat anchors, on the shores of my childhood island. Where the currents pull forcefully in between the sandbanks.
The moon, the shining ruler. Every six hours the tide changed. I learnt then by experience, one could travel far without effort, just floating. Being pulled by the moon while floating on the sea surface. The mind would soar high into the migrant’s bird view flying above. Admiring how all processes are interconnected.
By experiencing nature in loco through the body, there was much learning taking place, and curiosity being triggered…
While studying biology during my teens, learnt we all came from the sea. The primordial soup: the first complex molecules join together in the skies thunderstorms.
Parallel to biology began my art studies, transmitting into the canvas what I experienced in the sub aquatic world. Later took a degree in Architecture, concerned on how architecture can influence people’s quality of life, as well as influence the natural environment, whether is well or badly designed, projected and built. All is interconnected.
Nowadays, my art is profoundly inspired in the ocean.
The ocean breathes through me into the canvas, becoming vivid paintings.
Ancient schools of wisdom say, that our soul is connected to our body through the breath. Our soul as being the eternal essence, which animates us, and thus indistinguishable from the essence of the universe. /God/Source.
While diving into the ocean, I breathe the ocean in.
When painting, the ocean breathes through me.
