THE MANATURE SERIES
"MANATURE" is a contraction of two words--"MAN", the artist, and " NATURE", the basic elements that comprise the artwork which basically describes what this painting is: an interaction work between the artist and the inadvertent designs and compositions created by nature as water and colors take their natural courses on the empty canvas. These designs are then enhanced by collages of Korean and Philippines handmade paper and fibers, which ultimately finalizes to an interesting interplay of colors, texture and shapes and forms.
