|As a painter I act as a filter. I absorb what I see and hear, transform them into images and colors that best express how I feel on canvas. My paintings are constantly telling stories, recollection of memories, scattered pictures, scents, feelings and random thoughts on canvas. Painting to me is like writing in a journal, using symbols, colours, different shapes, materials and forms to write a story, and to share my encounters is a part of my life.Amabel explores the unconscious sense of memory on her latest collection, collaborating with poems she has written for every painting, a style she has developed at her earlier years as an artist. I have a habit of writing poems for each of my paintings. It is the essence of each painting. They are like lyrics to music. And each painting is a part of my soul, a glimpse of my presence, the touch from my heart. The true existence of my life lies within my paintings.|
