Artist Statement
The core of my work is improvisation. I’m interested in the development of a personal language through a process of discipline, immediacy and detachment. My work develops like a form of automatic writing, configured by impulse, memory, the subconscious, observations from nature and discovery. Drawing, calligraphic gesture, geometry, patterns and occasionally text, are woven and overlapped amongst applications of color, stains, drips and transparencies. Each piece is defined and motivated by the challenge towards the unknown and the search for a poetic voice. The drawings are mostly done with brushes and watercolors, following the eastern tradition of caligraphic gesture as its source.
