artist statement

The body of my work revolves around relationships between contrasts, apparent opposites or dualites. I am fascinated by natural and manmade processes, changing landscapes, urban environments and cultural differences. Interdisciplinary exchange, questioning the status quo and envisioning where we are headed are central to my understanding of artistic expression.

I view my minimal acrylic painting and abstract photography as a continuing collection of transformative moments, revealing something seemingly ordinary in a new way, like visual haiku. The works reflect the ephemeral impressions discovered through travels to diverse 'global gardens' and the search for a simple, evocative form through layers of meaning, fragments and associations.

The rhythm and ductus of the image and textural combinations are inspired by concrete reduction, modern poetry, prose fragments and especially personal observations from nature and urban landscapes.
