I wanted to capture the essence of a rainforest - the throng of life, the luscious greens, the ever-flowing water from seemingly all directions...
Last time I was in a rainforest (the one and only in fact) was aged 17, and 2.5 decades ago at Sinharaja, Sri Lanka. Clearly it stuck with me in the depths. Making art is interesting because you make time for feelings/desires to come out that are generally well hidden beneath the layers we wrap ourselves in over time. Sharing art is always tough. It may look easy, but it's sharing a part of yourself that *you* barely know.
Next time I'm in Sri Lanka, I plan to go back to Sinharaja, and this time I'll be ready for the pesky leeches!
