“Brilliant Legacy” is a series of abstract paintings that explore the idea of Art as if it were the gem itself:
Is a work of art like a diamond? When you apply more focus and creative intensity, does it make the artwork shine brighter?
Does the pressure to create perfect art create more unique and precious works of art?
Energetic lines push inwards, toward the centre of each piece. The movement of the brush strokes, symbolize the pressure that created the painting, the “diamond”, as well as the prism structure of the gem itself. The high contrast of black and white emulates the crystalline structure of each piece while illuminating the stress it took to create each unique piece.
