Conservation of Nature Conservation of self
Nature is endowed with mystical intensity. When I find myself in nature I glimpse its beauty and its wisdom. The order and the chaos of nature enable me to return to profound yet simple familiarity with myself; allowing me to connect to spirit. Seclusion in nature also expands and refines an inner sense of freedom. In my eyes, preserving nature equals self preservation, in particular, and the preservation of humanity, in general. Damage or injury of nature is tantamount to mortal self injury. Most of these painting were based on the destruction of nature in favor of the construction of buildings. The destruction of flora was imported to my studio, there preserved, in memoriam.
