Why I do what I do

This website will give you a glimpse into my work as an artist,  community builder and activist. I have been negotiating the world through the lens of a creative entrepreneur for the last two decades. It's been a wonderful journey with a lot of learning and collaborating with people I deeply respect.
In the coming years, I believe that creative thinkers will be crucial to document, stitch, hold and present the world. We are at the very edge of collapse on one side, and of a future that can spin out into unimaginable wonders on the other. I believe we can get to the happier side by working together!

‘Glow Worms’…. oil / canvas

January 24th, 2008

This painting is a part of the series which deals with nature. For subject matter, I figured that I shall choose nature or live things and not man-made things. I know this is really vast. But it gives me a lot of ideas and options but also helps me focus in one direction. I know glow worms don’t look like this in real, but this is the liberty granted by painting…:-)

  • Curious to know why you chose the glow-worms if you are not studying them…what is the thought process in selecting glow-worms versus errr ants or turtles…? :)
    not to say that everything you do has to be pre-meditated, but i do think its worth questioning post facto why something was chosen over all others to be in your work. Why should that question arise? I guess it will help you understand, and make sense of your work and process. And it will certainly be interesting for us to understand where you’re coming from too.
    Also, I’m curious to know if the background was also ‘imagined’ or was it a nature study like your previous triptych?
    One last q: what are you working on this week…has Glow-worms influenced the direction that you are looking at in any way.

  • I like the work overall. Good colour, and good form. In spite of the glowworms being one big “blob”, theres still clarity within the forms. Thats important. How big is this piece?
