Artist Statement

I liken my engagement to drawing from life in the moment to the way I do photography, taking the witnessed scene as a starting point and a source to which I react for the production of a series of accidents and decisions that arise from concentration as well as absent-mindedness . Hence, I strive for drawing that is connected to everyday unbridled calligraphy in its unselfconsciousness and shamelessness.

My works throughout several media are fueled by the work system and the aesthetics of improvisation and continuous body awareness. In such a state of mind, it is possible to appreciate the unexpected as it unfolds and build around it.

I believe in the tangibility of drawings and in their reality as objects, as opposed to images. Hence, I consider my selection of surfaces and materials as crucial to the character of all pieces.
