"In my artistic process, I contemplate the boundaries of traditional painting and encompasses the transitory and ephemeral nature of creation. My works stems from my physical, spiritual and emotional body and my life experiences that resonate and juxtapose with immanent reality. I am drawn to ritualism that either derives from my imagination or that is based on literal, philosophical or musical content.
I describe my forms as developing from the personification of objects and the exploration of archetypes, visual symbols or energetic imprints existing in myth, ancient stories, auditory content and the unconscious mind. These forms are primitive, elemental morphing into the natural and the human and are open to interpretation.
Drawing is my core method of expression that I use to create my forms and which than imposed and interlace in my paintings and performance. I often tend to work with the concept of repetition and sequence with the aim to create patterns, communicate moods and feelings. The objective of is to establish a sense of visual rhythm and movement while focusing on transition and transformation, continuity and change, accident and design. In my recent work I have made a slow transition to performance, incorporating painting, body gesture and photography. this experience has birthed numerous experimental collaborations with fellow artists from different disciplines with the aim of creating an unique experience of interdisciplinary work through improvisation".
