Back to Painting



Mixed media on canvas

A quite symbolic and stylized painting ‘Reaching’ is aimed at evoking a feeling of connection but also of striving for more connection.  I initialy wanted to title the artwork as ‘reaching for the unseen’, but wanted to keep it more open-ended or universal, since some people are reaching for more joy, reaching for meaning, reaching for higher understanding, or other concepts and goals… The symbols or shapes around the hand were intuitively painted, and the painting were created in layers of colour, textures and shapes, which include the rain and leaf shapes in the background that emphasize the importance of our interconnection with the natural environment for our happiness and growth.

Exhibited at Ingrid Nuss Fine Art Gallery at Timberlake Organic Village as part of EVOKING
