Acrylic Painting


Website: gelarehraufi.com

I paint intuitively with a loose intention in mind. Abstract painting for me is letting my intuition and feeling control my hand without a plan and at the end I wrap it all up in a considered composition. Each painting is a personal journey. The viewers’ opinion and reactions about an artwork is the interesting part of this journey. Layering, mark-making, patterning and collaging are seen in most of my works.
