I am curious about the human conditions that surround me, especially processes of change and how circumstances affect the choices we make, while acknowledges the cyclical nature of life, where many experiences are more or less universal.
My work focuses on "Scriptograms"; gestural writings that can express ideas beyond the actual
meaning of the words and their typical coding. The materials I use reflect an ambiguity of place
where meaning can have alternate interpretations.
My work explores the relationships between what we see and the interior, non-visible experiences
we feel. Transformation is a central theme in my work - transformation across mediums and from
2D to spatial concerns.
