“Optimism”, part of ‘Happiness series’ (Full series of 4 so far still available!)
High end acrylic paint on quality stretched canvas
All pieces of the ‘roller coaster’ series come in the same square size 36″×36″ and can be easily combined with any other of the paintings to create your own personal artwork of 2, 3 or 4.
Please just contact me for preview photos of each combination option.
This ‘Happiness series’ is one of the few still completely available! And it looks really great together!! You would just need the space for a full series, what comes down to a 72″×72″ big piece – gorgeous!
By translating those brief electric moments of feelings in the ‘Roller Coaster series’ it’s meant to feature pure energy. Each second of our life is connected to a certain feeling. But what is the color of a certain mood, and what shape does it have? How does it feel to take a risk? How does happiness or optimism look like?
With the Roller Coaster series it was my very urge to tell the story of ups and downs of my immigration ‘career’ while capturing all major emotions with high end acrylic paint, and theatrical brushes and tools. It was an exciting and fulfilling process to experience a broad variety of feelings over again. While thinking through all those seven years of endless paperwork, restrictions, and an unknown future I gave myself only a few seconds to pick color, tool(s), and shape to express that very moment of one single emotion. The square, white canvas served as the only given basic material.
With this series of paintings I am expressing very personal feelings that were born during a very intense time in my life as a Theater Artist trying to immigrate into the US. However, these are emotions that most people may have experienced themselves and can relate to.
This is my roller coaster of life, at the same time, it could be anyone’s.
