My work is an experimental source of applying ethnic art into an abstract composition. By
sketching human and animal forms, and adding texture into a meditative fluid process it allows me
explore the development as an organic evolution.
My graphite-centric drawing, sculpture & hand-drawn animation work elusively investigates
identity & encompasses an obsessive conceptual framework, denoting recollection &
disappearance, memory & forgetfulness, and mark making & erasure
The subjects of my paintings are people and the composition of objects. The human figure in
painting enters a different dimension. I transform appearances and reinvent these in the layers of
color, are simultaneously real and detached.
I am drawn to archaic formats in my art. There is something about delving into ephemeral forms
--revealing details that would otherwise be missed ––that express a passion, especially as said
forms are being phased out of use.
I build visually and contextually elaborate photo-composites printed on a subtly-iridescent
chromogenic paper which catches the eye and gives depth to my themes of illumination
and human self-reflection.
