The tigers stripes

The three tiger heads are about energy. Pure natural energy as it is expressed in one of the wildest of predators, the tiger and its dynamic movement. Tiger’s head indicates the direction of the animal’s movement.

The tiger can be described as an orange predator with black stripes, or perhaps it may rather be regarded as a black predator with orange bands.
There are no two tigers have the same pattern of black stripes.
These black stripes is to give the tiger’s head a mask character and ambiguity. They form a network of pattern as an arabesque, which is usually symmetrical structure, which seems to continue indefinitely.

The explosive colors on the canvas is, for me, a very important element. They are the ones showing the strong expression in the tiger, its ferocity and energy. It is this dynamic colorful brush use, that best expresses the tiger’s nature.
