Simultaneously the rain falls in June in both places I call home. In Laos the June rain washes away the dust and intense heat. In Canada, after the long cold winter, the rain welcomes spring. June Rain is my signature painting which is recognized by ominous clouds with streaks of light and anchored by monks in Saffron Robes.
A feeling of softness from the flow of monk’s saffron robes speaks directly to our own sense of humility, contemplation, and to peaceful and spiritual sensibilities.
Nocturne - Oil
The gradation of silvery-grey into blue and purple or black is accentuated by a streak of light. It speaks directly to the sense of mystery relating to time and place and to the ethereal quality of my art. Without darkness there would be no light.
Nocturne - Paper Works
Inspired by James McNeil Whistler and JMW Turner my paper work Nocturne is anchored by streaks of light from passing fishing boats on the Mekong River or from isolated villages shrouded in darkness. The mist and fog emanating from the river give the painting a blurry sense of mystery.
Lao Series & Early Works
Taiwanese and Japanese periods required the mastering of thousands of brushstrokes under the watchful eyes of my masters. Some required that one stroke painted must result in twelve different shades of grey.
