I create to fulfil my own need to exist...

My work is imagined around the notion of human structure as emotional investigation space. I create a transfer between body, self and the other, between the others and finally the environment. The materiality of the work is retained but its inherent rhythm dissolves, its image crumbles. The canvass gradually exhibits textures reminiscent ofsculpting; the notion of painting fades away to let through traces of transition, bursts of light clinging to the surface. I hush the noise of colours. Transparencies shroud the space and blur the vision, forcing the mind to abandon sensory expectations. For instance, timid yet often impertinent whites sweep through the canvass, obscuring all no-tions of time, all references to space. Remains only the imagining, the impression of amaybe.
