My paintings have developed from many years of collaging. The use of different materials, layered and juxtaposed found objects, has transformed into larger works. My paintings, mostly with acrylic paint, often use additional media such as oil stick, charcoal and graphite. Lines are evolving from handwriting and calligraphy, while shapes investigate the relationships between positive and negative space. Every canvas starts a journey of its own. Many of my works continue to evolve over time. I consider my works to be “living entities”, which I often continue to discover and change over time. Investigating the space via mark-making is an ongoing process for me. Deconstructing old works and reconstructing them in space provides for new possibilities and unveils new directions.
