I always viewed my artistic process as an event, a rhythmic dialogue between the materiality of the medium and myself.
I always viewed my artistic process as an event, a rhythmic dialogue between the materiality of the medium and myself. Typically, I put my canvas on the floor and apply the first layer spontaneously, laying down large patches of liquid colors through a rapid gestural movement, moving around the canvas, and moving the canvas itself to amplify the effect, and disrupt it as well. I use a variety of mediums to explore their potential and to venture into new possibilities.
In a sense my work is an exploration into matter, and it allows for a fair amount of unpredictability. It recalls at times geological formations but the subject matter, if there must be one, is creation itself. The subject is only secondary to the matter and is largely if not exclusively informed by the material I am using. The first layer is the matrix on which I build structure through a process of association and formal problem solving. The association process bears resemblance to apophenia, in that there is a quest to discover meaningful connections in randomness
With this new body of work, I intend to explore the phenomenon further, in reverse so to speak, by attempting to retrace the process and record, as accurately as I can, the path taken by the interplay of reflection and association. This journey will be accessible on my website in the form of a recording.
