In today's world, there is an increasing pressure for productivity and achievement- often pushing us beyond what is natural and capable as human beings. Likewise, we also often only see what results out of the passage of time rather than the distinct moments that lead to those being possible; we expect to fit in a lifetime before the passage of a single day.
There is a saying that goes: "Nature does not rush, and yet everything is on time." Nature is our fundamental guide towards truth, reminding us of the reality that growth and progress are a result of patience and process. Yet, before we know it we can see single seeds into entire forests. We, likewise, cannot grow into our full form without the gifts that each season brings; rain and sun are both integral to our development and we cannot grow before our time, although our sight often does not wait for us. Cherry blossoms symbolize this passage of time and water is an everlasting message of continued, onward existence. I wanted to explore the phenomenon of time through the natural world and its gift to all of us in the reminder that its wonder is brought about through abiding to the organic flow and development of time. To bring this piece to life, I used oil paint in addition to my own hand-crafted pigments I made by using ground up compounds of dirt, flora and spices. I used pointillism and directional marks to create an expressionistic world, where if one looks closely, they can see each layer and dot as individual composites as well as a part of the composition as a whole- allowing a simultaneous staccato impression and a deeper meaning pointing to the reality that all things in life are comprised of individual moments, compounding to the whole we see.
