1995

Through painting and drawing I fold and unfold the myths that surround us like a cosmic origami. 

Capturing the frenetic nature of the ether through lines and colours borrowed and blended from a hybrid of cultures. 

Our commonality as humans is essential in my dialogue as I push through aesthetic norms of acceptability and taste. Memories, myths and shared emotions weave through my paintings, abstracted and reshaped again and again until we come to see that our humanity is what humbles us and sustains us. Capturing the constant oceanic movement of what it means to move through a life. To capture the ineffable in paint and graphite. To resonate with a truth that lies beneath all our embellishments. My work is more than a representation of a thing, it is the thing, and it continues to evolve long after I am finished with it, because the viewer then takes it to their own place of understanding and experience. For it is then that the painting becomes the relationship and the journey.
