Entranced by the delicate interplay between the impossible, the infinite, through the lawlessness of water-based media, flora and fauna are deeply rooted in the continuation of the language of tradition, seek eternity, avoiding explicit references that might betray the confines of our time.
Tethered by the tangible constraints of canvas, paper, glass, or wood, stages for a narrative unfolding within the framework of a void invite viewers into a world that transcends the temporal and the ordinary. Guided by subtle movements that endure through the ages, the ever-changing landscape of our flesh is recorded. Working within the boundaries of figurative representation, the xylem of our existence is fossilized.
An exploration of the internal and metaphysical is made, an endeavour to transport the audience beyond the confines of what apparently seems quotidien through the vessel of transfiguration that exceeds the confines of time.
