Here is a super quick look at some of my paintings from the Diamond Portal Series, a few thousand hours condensed in 15 seconds!
Diamond Portal Series
"Diamonds are not specimens to me, they have soul and story. That's what makes a diamond, a diamond! Diamonds and emotions go together. I am intrigued by the ability of a diamond to hold you captivated - through its fire, brilliance, reflections, colour and its association as a holder of value, prestige, power and mystique. The eternal depth of diamonds are like portals, gateways to other dimensions. In the Diamond Portal Series, I explore the moments of human emotions as seen through the lens of the diamond as a storyteller. You are invited to enter portals where subtle references exist but the story is completed based on your life experiences and desires. I hope that each time you see the work, a new set of questions, solutions and possibilities emerge. The qualities of diamond act as metaphors and hold the stories together." -- Reena Ahluwalia, #JewelerWhoPaints
