Artist Statement

It’s in movement that you can find stillness and vice versa.
In the process of the blob series, I observe data and chose a small piece that can be translated into a movement.
Each time the shape, like a glyph is very minimal, and I extend it to a larger scale.
I start by drawing on paper, extracting the shape, then finding a piece of wood that can fit.
Sourcing materials takes time but brings a new perspective to the process.

Once the wood is painted with primer, I start tracing circles, and the grid and place the glyph.
Then comes the cutting part, hand jigsaw, and sanding.
About colors, each harmony is created to fit the shape and add dimension, eventually an optical illusion of the concept.
On this one, I wanted uplifting colors but also a good contrast.
Always coming back to dusk and dawn, the essence of light, each second developing new colors, and nuances.
This could be a sunrise, this could be a sunset, and the viewer can decide or see what he wishes to see.
Light as usual, is the one thing that we all can have and enjoy.
each moment becomes an abstract landscape you can appreciate wherever you are.
