moleskine experiments! I’ve finally built up the courage to push my colour usage further than i have before. It’s really interesting seeing how colour changes can make so much difference in indicating depth and form.

Sometimes we become tense without even being aware of it.
The muscles strain and become knotted with worry and stress.
Take some time today to pay attention to your muscles, to your breathing, to how seriously you are taking yourself.
Provide the space to let these things relax. Breathe a few times and visualize the muscles literally unknotting like a tangled rope.
It may improve the rest of your day.

Here’s my piece for this year’s “Suggestivism” show, curated by Nathan Spoor and hosted this time by Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, CA. The show opens August 16th, from 8:30-11pm and runs till September 6th.
Since the show is subtitled “Chronology,” I wanted to play around with the idea of a time shift and decided to have a seemingly sun bleached daytime scene bordering a nighttime scene, with the moonflowers from the border in full bloom.
Hope you can make it to the show to see the piece in person along with the incredible work by the other artists! Check out that line-up!
