"Color is a means of exerting direct influence on the soul." - Wassily Kandinsky
The abstract shapes in this painting called "The wind in your hair" are inspired by the passing of time. Immitating the movement of the wind, the brush strokes convey the appearance of something temporary and transformative. The bold colors carry a lot of emotion and help me portray different qualities of light. I'm fascinated by time and interested in the idea of transformation that exists both in life and in the relationship between color and shape. When adding a golden brush stroke to the other colored layers that exist together in harmony, I feel a sense of visual delight and satisfaction.
