In recent works I have meld the drawing and painting practices to explore concepts of connectedness and fragmentation. Patterns are amplified or detroyed and recreated as a place to start the abstraction of the image . Some alterations of the image reveal traces of previous work, showing the process. The subsurface layers, though not always obvious, carry the history of the search for the external reference. The result is an ambiguity between the surface and the depths and between the seen and unseen, which provides the imagination with a space to wonder and wonder.
