Artist Statement

I am personally motivated by my fascination with duality and how it is expressed via my Faith (Christianity) and my culture (Bini).
The Forms and colors I work with are my primary vehicles of expression. I treat my style as a second tier in my mode of expression, so basically if the message suits Abstract Expressionism then that is what I'll revert to, the same goes for Realism and Surrealism respectively.
Most of my work starts with written personal introspection based on a single topic, either an emotion or a concept i.e Joy or Victory, Hate or Freedom. Once I have channelled my ideas as writing or musing, I paint it in whatever style best suits the end goal.
Apparently most of my conclusions are best expressed in non representational norms of expression, as I am always seeking the expression of the relationship between emotions and the human soul.
