My recent works concentrate on the limitless variations of very simple visual elements and how they, when placed side by side, create a dialogue. The works explore both an impulsive and repetitive way of mark-making that is both gestural and meditative.
When I paint, I try to balance action and inaction. Ink and water-based paint allow me to do this. My intentional doing, the element of chance and the exchange of the layers of paint on a surface, are in constant interaction and fundamental to my process.
One of the most exciting things to make as an artist is starting a new piece of work. As soon as a single mark is put on this clean white expansive space it becomes something else. The steps that follow are an organic response to that what is already there.
Lately, I am fascinated by the juxtaposition of geometric and chaotic forms. It seems to me that it perfectly symbolizes both an urban environment and life in its essence.
