Bassmi realized a need to paint from his inner self.  What followed was an outpouring of images that connected the observable and the subconscious.  The approach, "Painting from my gut and not my mind", would prove basic to Bassmi's art.

This “Turtle Tracks Art Series”© is quite personal, and, I dare say, important work. We know that visual messages have far greater impact than words alone. I believe this vibrant series has great potential in a time of 24-hour images and 30-second reactions. I hope that my paintings can generate lasting engagement in ocean conservation efforts and remind us of the universal thread that connects every living thing.

Sailboats to Bears, Trawlers to Cabins, Waterfalls to Sunsets – these were my inspiration for a long while. As with so many artists, over time my work became looser, more expressionistic, large and mostly non-objective. I now classify myself as an Abstract Painter.
