CHASING SPACE

“My current artworks explore human natures pursuit for space: literally in a physical sense as well as figuratively in the internal sense. The process of work starts with loose and spontaneous ink washes and ends in intricate and complex lines and pinned xrays. I enjoy and need both processes – impulsive and free versus slow and detailed.

Angular planes of colour and x-ray float and journey through space in a random but contradictory organized fluid movement. Ink organic wash represents a freedom of space and transience. Meshed within this is the intricate landscape of architectural marks. Geometric shapes originally start in an organized fashion building layers upon each other until there is a dense overlapping of structures. The x-ray material a constant reminder of looking within the fragmented self.”
