About the Artwork
When I see the sunset, the moon floating between apartments or a boat floating on the blue sea, I get inspiration of colour and form in that moment. And I began to draw on the paper to reference that moment and then later cut it out of drawing book. I use the process of cutting and rearranging to create a collage. I tried for the first time, an. Acrylic collage method panting. Acrylic board collage is a transparent and lightweight material. There are few restrictions on placing multiple layers on top of each other, and the layers present overlapping transparent colours. I use a process of different mixing mediums into my paint which give my paintings a more rhythmic movement and widened the colour scheme in a very visible way.
