statement

I am interested in the multivalent ambiguities of abstraction.

My abstractions are not mathematical but more from nature.

Drawing fosters a direct approach. Charcoal is equally malleable and stubborn, delicate and inelegant, definite and imprecise. Marks and smudges are asked to give integrity to the observation of small things.
