City Lily Ponds 2018

The artist's comment:


Every few years something in me dies and awakens, leading me to a change of theme or style in my paintings. The preliminary signs of change are boredom of the previous theme or concept, my interest stops evolving and paintings lose their freshness. This happened to me as I was painting the Seashore paintings, selling them and getting commissions. I decided that aside from for commissions I'll stop painting them and researched for something else.

As I walked through the city, I discovered the Lily ponds. I saw their depth through the transparent water, in which colorful fish swam and weeds grew between rocks. On the ponds surface floated the Lily heart-like leaves and the glamorous beautiful flowers, a fallen leaf or straw, and through it I saw the depth of the heights - the skyscrapers, trees, clouds and the blue sky's reflection. 

I was not sure about this theme because of Claude Monet's monopoly over it.

Therefor I searched deeper and found that reflections are actually a psychedelic 

pattern of seeing parallel realities and this concept opened a new route for me to paint the Conceptual Images and their asymmetric reflections, as you can see in the home page.

Till I got to the conceptual images I managed to paint several paintings of City Lily Ponds. Each painting found a home.
