Mystical, Acrylic on canvas, 24" (H) x 72" (L). Private Collection.
The four panels have prolonged without interruption; unceasing and unbroken series of millions of original patterns. The changes of the colors in the patterns are derived by the events and the illusion of space which I have created in my garden for you to explore. There are three 'heart' shapes in the panels mounted between the flowers.
The entire four-panel painting is inspired by the East, Taj Mahal, Persian manuscript and English Medieval. I’ve always been interested in the simplicity but yet intricacy of the complex Arabesque patterns, adding my own twist of culture and tradition into pattern design.
The painting design compositions are always started unplanned but end up looking like my version of Batik patterns.
