ARTIST STATEMENT: I construct most of my work using over diluted acrylic, ink or watercolor
on paper or canvas. The surface lies horizontally during the process of painting
and drying to avoid the effects of gravity. My entire body, arm, hand and brush
flow in a continuous motion to produce my work.
I am inspired by the contradistinctive values of the medium I am using and search
for the tension within one color. Sensitive to oppositions and extremes, I learned
to question the authenticity of what appears as face value and to look below
I strive to create a sense of solidity and fluidity through deconstructing and
reconstructing an image. This is achieved by the repetitive, meditative action
of creating within one image autonomous effects; the directness of my brushstroke against the rushing and gradual fading of the color towards the white
of the background.
Within one or multiple brushstrokes, my intention is to suggest intimate but
forward movement, a limitless movement in time and space.
I seek to express tension in harmony, movement in stillness. I am looking
for what is unrevealed.
