The attention in my work is on the genesis and transformation of Life as I seek beyond merely portraying cyclic forms of change; each artwork is by itself a living formation undergoing visible and invisible processes as the materials interact in their capacities of physical and symbolic reactivity with one another.
In my interaction with my works, I aspire to that art is considered purposeful and valuable in itself because it constitutes and is constituted by our lived lifes, which to me captures the cyclic, ever-changing essentials of Life as purposeful and valuable for itself – irrespective of its changing appearances.
As varieties of substances are added to the raw canvas surface, they interact in indeterminate ways; a demonstration that each molecule possesses individual qualities that reacts with others in a alchemist purification process. The artworks become living witnesses of the alchemist ennobling of cyclic transformation as the physical reactions of substances continuously manifest themselves in ephemeral plays of color and shape.
I find inspiration in Dove Bradshaw’s conceptualism, her positioning of herself as midwife to nature as she experiments with metamorphic processes of indeterminacy, and her embracing of ephemerality. I am also dedicated to the works of abstract expressionists and their fascination with unconventional ideas, materials and mental symbols.
