My studio practice revolves around the processes that give physical presence to the invisible. I produce art that becomes a catalyst for transient experiences. Through my work, that ranges from drawings on paper to wall installations, I investigate both the subjective and scientific perceptions of nature.
When creating my art I draw inspiration from observable natural phenomena, living systems, and their formation on a micro and macro scale. The forms and structures in my works consist of repeated lines, circles, and pearl-like shapes that flow, loop, twist, collide, and fuse together. Which in turn, resemble molecules, tracks of subatomic particles, orbits, and shapes of microorganisms. These intricate patterns are carefully constructed, are often symmetrical and imply tension between chance and structure.
Drawing is central to my studio practice and I explore this discipline by means of abstraction. I am fascinated by the idea of drawing being in a constant flux; teetering on the verge between “becoming” and “unbecoming”, and never reaching a definite form. I strive to give the viewer a visceral experience by putting emphasis on a process and materials. I play with the idea that my drawing, whether it is made of graphite on paper, glue, or plastic resin floating off the wall, can resemble something other than its material identity. The constant shift between the literal and the illusion intrigues me.
