“By applying abstraction, I can create intense personal moments by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. My canvas is an arena in which to act, analyze and express intense emotions, often raw and executed with vigor and bigness, these canvases are a reflection and pictorial equivalent of our complex inner selves. ! The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By questioning the concept of movement, I reveal an inherent awkwardness, a humour that echoes our own vulnerabilities. By doing so, new sequences are created which reveal an inseparable relationship between motion and color. !"
