I make art, and to be more precise – print, in an attempt to make sense of the world, to capture the energy and reasons that move us and make us who we are.
As much as I am concerned with the conceptual side of my work I am interested in pushing the boundaries of materials I am working with. Whether it is a zinc plate, which I treat as a sculptural medium, or semitransparent paper, which I use to layer individual images to create an illusion of depth or references of shifts in time.I use cross cultural references and allegories but would often take them to a tangible personal level to communicate the feelings and emotions we may all share.
The process is a dialogue / balance between two powerful sides of human nature: instinct and intelligence. Where an artist can be simultaneously an improviser and a constructor. It is the tension between control on the one hand, and an eagerness to accept and embrace mistakes on the other.
