It seems I can say more with an image than with words. When I started painting, the theme of connection and freedom were on my mind the most. I wanted to convey an emotion to show what this “connection” was about and the following images were sketched out. I wanted to show simple illustrations that packed a punch with just form and color.

I think the artist does not need to say anything really, except maybe titling the piece, to guide the viewer in a certain direction. Everyone has their own opinion about everything anyways. I was never a big fan of long, drawn out artist statements. I’d much rather eat up the image with my eyes and come to my own conclusions.

What came from these sketches were bold and kind of primitive paintings now in the attachment series.
