I'm intrigued by materials but also by the lack of them; absence and technical constrains are a drive. I paint on different surfaces, with various colors using a variety of tools: oil, graphite, pens, pencils, watercolor, canvas, wood, paper, brushes, knives, rubber sticks…
My work is anchored in reality but not always realistic. I work in and around the tension between the abstract and the concrete. I work in layers, and like the process to be seen.
Iconic shapes and images interest me, iconic shapes such as that of a man, of a bird, of a tree. I strip them down to their naked form and interpret their existence in crude brushstrokes or boney lines of graphite.
I move around, I travel, I reorganize the studio. The itinerant artist makes do with little art supplies, I push the material.
The question of when to stop is on my mind; I like to think of my art as stopped rather than finished.
I’m fascinated by the Word & Image tradition.
Printmaking is a new world that I am discovering.
