Arcadia, a mystical land that is known for its idyllic pastoral setting, where the plant and animal coexist in harmony — reminiscent of a green yet colourful utopia. The series borrow heavily from my own works in The Vibratory Series and The Visitation Series, places that exist within the mind’s eye. Yet, there is influence from my surrounding living in Hong Kong with it’s lush green environment. Then perhaps there is the longing to return back to Canada for a certain slower paced life. Sleepy and comfortable? Regardless, the flow of the brush and how I gravitate from painting to the next is not clearly defined. What is physically noticeable is that I am painting more during sunlight, versus in the late morning hours in the studio.
