About The Artwork

The journey of my watercolor practices was set about as the process of releasing trapped emotions when I was suffering from deeper emotional episodes. After decades-long healing and searching for healing for my depression, I started building a company and moved to California during the pandemic, which had mysteriously put an end to my struggles. The artworks here are made after I’ve transitioned into a new phase, where I transcribe more of the positive emotions in my paintings. From my studies of the surrealists’ automatic writing, I practiced automatic paintings in my visual work, allowing the hand to guide the way with a few preconceived composition planning. Each piece of artwork is directly associated with the present moment where the artwork was created. My practice has turned out to be therapeutic and meditative. With my earlier works, I capture thoughts that cross my mind and use them as the titles of the painting. The process helps to manifest repressed emotions and let them out. After the pain or all sorts of emotions are released, I move on with my life. Stay is part of the body of work, Love is about to fall. Its titles is dedicating to Jamie’s poem, Stay, in her poetry book, Heart, Diamond, Club, Spade.
