The series 1 of my ambiguous landscape is a blend of automatism & surrealism with figuration of multi-dimensional spaces which transcend into complex, cosmic landscapes. My process of doing this series was defined by a strong wisdom through hypnagogic intuition by adding a dimension of metaphysical awareness. My artworks are often supplemented with an aesthetic of fusion of free-spirit and variability style with elements of figuration and precisely rendered, though fantastically conceived and multi-dimensional space. Through exploration, my unconscious mind & symbolic language of biomorphic forms are a mixture of formal abstraction and social consciousness which had a lasting impact on the development of my own personal style and artistic practice. During this time, I wholeheartedly believed that art could be a powerful agent for social change. As time went by, my paintings became more narrative which frequently featured atmospheric backgrounds set within multi-planar environments filled with strange landscapes and striking lines which combined automatic drawing with doodling and color theory exploration. Obviously notice some lightening neon of hue, and a turn towards more timeless mystical subject matter. In addition to the process of my artworks, I can consider it a ritual because visualization of images from my mind’s eye is some sort of a remote viewing of a place where we visited during dream stage level.
