“if you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint, then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced” – Vincent Van Gogh

Elon Musk has advocated that the survival of the human race would be voyaging to other planets,
such as Mars, to cultivate and create a living breathing planet to sustain the human race. As an important subject matter, I have conceptualised and painted in oils a depiction of this concept. Cultivation and development of the human race are high on the future agenda. My painting is a semi-realistic concept including the sparse background showing mankind’s advancement to otherworldly planets.

Artist Statement:

Painting is a wonderful way of going deeper into the beauty of the present moment. While painting, time seems to disappear as forms take shape on the canvas. There is a deep sense of peace in the creative process. The finished painting then becomes a record, a history, and physical evidence of the creative process in action. The subject matter, light, form and colour are key aspects of my work. I hope it is evident to anyone looking at my artwork that I have a profound respect for nature and form, particularly as it is revealed in various qualities of light and shade. Painting light and colour in its various expressions have been a passion of mine from the beginning. My approach is basically inspired by curiosity, dream state and consciousness. I primarily work in my studio overlooking the sea, an incredible source of inspiration. ? I embrace and find most styles and techniques interesting, and I explore many of them, incorporating them when I can into my work. Therefore my personal painting method is a combination of many techniques and of course my own signature! My work is regularly exhibited and sold in Abu Dhabi and the UK and have held regular exhibitions abroad.
