Naive Art: The LOST Series

 

As an outsider, with no formal  art training, I offer  a fresh look – through the eyes of a child - at socio-political contemporary issues (climate change, criminal justice, human rights, armed conflicts) and subjects of eternal human interest  (friendship, love, hope, healing.) My paintings expresses horror, shock, revulsion (negatively lost) but also joy, hope, wonder (positively lost.)

 

My style is naïve. It does however contain some complex techniques that I have developed through experimentation. I paint in layers, bringing about a rich, dreamy background. I texture the flat surface with foreign elements to create 3D illusion. I play with perspectives and proportions. And I freely engage in geometric abstraction of forms.

 

 I walk a fine line between the primitivism of a Henri Rousseau and the social engagement of the Mexican muralists, the color exuberance of a Matisse and the subconscious action of the Abstract Expressionists.
