Inspired by the movement of fabric and material, his paintings elucidates vintage photographic ambience that embrace “the imaginative potential of the form of things”. His other subject of interests include nature inspired theme such as lotus flower and rock represented in a minimal fashion. My Love 3 captures an anonymous woman dressed in a conservative yet modern white bridal gown. Set against a dark toned landscape, the lace and patterning of the dress is accentuated by delicately shaded strokes.
