Abstract
The abstract paintings in this thesis exhibition are about spatial relations deriving from landscapes. Memory, moods, feelings, and intuition, as well as color relations, shapes, expressive brushstrokes, and the paint itself are important elements in achieving the intended meaning and effects. My method involves painting and over-painting, changing the painting constantly until it is what I wanted it to become without knowing it in advance—a process in which the painting eventually becomes itself by its own volition. But when do I feel my painting is really finished? I feel like an adventurer, a discoverer, when I paint; I want something challenging and rewarding to emerge from my painting. I have to accept a certain mystery about the end of things. I see my art as a search for spiritual meaning and as a way of living, both of which emerge through the energy I expend in its execution.
