Art, Life & Other Things: Same Time, Different Place, Same Place Different Times, 2013

mixed media on canvas

From the artist

Taking the poetic approach in my art, life and other things, I am very much influenced by the traditional and contemporary Chinese philosophie.  Art is Life is Art.

By juxtaposing the figurative and the semi-abstract, I am hoping to extend the scene beyond the limiting size of the canvas. After all, Life is bigger that it seems and it is fleeting.
