2021 ~ Atmospheric & Cockatoo Series
I explored the atmospheric composition inspired by Nihonga (Japanese paintings) in this series. I used floating and unrealistic colors to evoke ethereal feelings. The subject (cockatoos) are placed in a mystical but natural inspired settings.
As I mentioned in this article, my earliest memories of cockatoos had an important impact on my childhood. The cockatoo here symbolizes a state of calmness. I am particularly referring to our common experience of our mind floating between the state of awakening and unconsciousness.
