Artist Statement
I look for the universal beneath the particular and for the particular above the universal.
When drawing a line or dot my whole effort and attention is there at the tip of the pencil.
At the very same moment I am aware of every mark on the paper already made and every mark yet to come. The single mark is the particular, the sum of them all is the universal.

The marks I leave on paper with graphite, ink, hole punch or traces left by dripping water on a video screen are sometimes most minimal and at other times more expressive. They start out from a set of simple rules or evolve as improvisations. By listening to the momentary sound the pencil makes on the surface, every drawing is the most truthful memory of the time taken up by the making of the drawing. There is no beginning or end, no top or bottom, no reference to the scale of it all. Every drawing is a fragment and a complete whole at the same time. In the viewers’ eyes, ears and mind, the continuous movement of lines and dots on the surface offers many kinds of silence.
