" F O R M "
Acrylic, glass on board 2021
48x30" Set of 3
Imagine yourself snuggled up in a cozy blanket, savoring a cup of coffee on a lazy Sunday morning, and watching the raindrops trickle down the windowpane. Even the mere thought of this tranquil sight brings a sense of serenity to my mind.
Since relocating to California, rainy days have acquired a special significance for me, as they only occur during the winter season. Even in the summer, I yearn for the rain, as it brings a distinct and different sensation. So when a rare downpour graced us this summer, I ventured to the mountains.
The usual sweet aroma of the dry soil had been replaced by the refreshing, earthy fragrance of the lush greenery, reinvigorated by the rainfall. The entire spectrum of nature's colors seemed to be imbued with a heightened saturation, owing to the hydration. The mountainside was so tranquil, with only the gentle patter of the raindrops as a backdrop.
As I picked up a leaf, I noticed that it seemed to be repelling the rain, and the drops of water moved along the leaf vein, following the vibrations of my hand. It was at that moment that the idea of capturing the shapeless rain in an organic form was unlocked in my mind. The constant, gentle flow of frosted glass embodies the essence of a light summer rain.
"F O R M" is an ode to the peaceful, quiet memory of that rainy day in the mountains.
