Seeing everything as beautiful, as an artist I am granted the gift of allowing the energy of a moment to express itself in form in a way that lives beyond itself. Color, lines, composition all combine to reveal the soul of nature, uncovering the inner beauty of its very being. Thus can the dance that is life be frozen in a way that can continue to be received anew as time unfolds. It is my joy to create forms that invite those who witness them to move through the portrayed moment into the timeless and boundless realms of eternity and infinity that are the true being of us all
— Georji Busha
