dc.description.abstract My vignettes are amalgamations, representing various occurrences or select moments from several road trips I undergo. Each painting is comprised of the people I admire and the activities we do together that I find unique and special to us. Each one pays homage to the memorable landscapes I have witnessed and acts like a temple worshipping the moment I had shared with the most important people to me. I try to create a world which acts as their playground, in which both the "cast" and "stage set" harmoniously co-exist, and where the possibilities are endless. I steal land masses from photographic images and edit unlikely or complementary sceneries together to form new organically structured landscapes. This way, multiple points of view can be seen together, with some of my fondest memories, like photographs glued to an internal scrap-book in my mind. I try to capture the feeling of living in the moment, specifically mine. en
