"found"

by Arifah

I paint in layers and use oil pastels and acrylics. I enjoy using the knife and building texture until I discover the colors that I want to have dominate and then the story starts to unfold.

"found" was made with "air" they are relatives, and quite fitting together
it's the realization that all we are seeking is right here, and we are found

Initially I started painting to escape from life. as I was not able to relate to people and the world in an intimate way. I found that my life made more sense when I was painting. This is how I gained wisdom. Many times, during a discovery phase of the canvas, I noticed a heart, emerging from layers of paint, or right on the surface. It always astounded me, still does. I think we are all looking for assurances, and I am often reminded It Is Always Here.

I now know I am exploring emotional evolution, using colors. The multiple layers represent our interwoven perceptions from past, to present, to desire, to Truth. If you hold the painting up to a light you will see hidden layers of colors come through, and the painting changes. This is what I am doing to myself, holding my experiences up to the Light.

I am finding the art in the matter.
