Artist Statement
    The works on paper I have made are divided into two groups. The first group are collages made from newspaper pictures I have collected. These collages mainly consist of standing figures and hands. I use these collages as under layers in my paintings.                                                                     The second group are paintings on paper. This work relates to my paintings on canvas and explore the subtle narrative created by overlapping imagery.
