Artist's Statement

There is a certain type of discipline present in my work. Laborious repetitions appear to rule the measure of it, but there are interruptions of the human hands present - imperfections, that override any mechanical indications. The works are extensions of the familiar; subtracting the common thing. Purpose to reveal unseen shapes of practice, experience and identity. Each piece has the image of obsession; a narrative of accumulation of small acts carried out over an extended period of time.

Lately, I have been transforming writing into drawings as I address texts as images. Languages as patterns. Definitions as gestures. The agglomerate subjects often lose their legibility resulting in autonomous image(s).
