Art is not a skill. This is an irrevocable fact . It is beyond form. It is the consciousness juxtaposed with feelings, thus become structured and created into form These are the innate elements of art.

Action, which is the process of painting, is an interplay of sorrow, pain, fear, and the liberation from it which is joy, beauty, and freedom. It has an infinite doors in which these opposing forces interact.
To me, my painting is a door to open. It is for the viewer to open and discover not the artist's space but their own
A dimension in which the element of art and the challenges of life confront us.
