About the art
I make abstract paintings with paper. My work overall examines and explores aspects of ephemerality, unpredictability, and eventual acceptance as it relates to human experience. More precisely, embracing of the idea that all things and beings change and evolve followed by the inevitable ending and simultaneous outcome of a new birth is very much at the core of my practice and intention. Whether the expression is manifested in heavily textured stripped lines, rigidly structured or fluidly aligned “grid-like” surface, or intensely sanded down geometric shapes “unearthed” from the bottom layer, the key to my visual articulation is in the process. In a nutshell, several layers of paper are glued together then the very layers are destroyed by stripping, sanding, or peeling in order to reveal what’s underneath. In the end, I celebrate tenuous and delicate beauty of life through limning universal human experience of precarious impermanence and its ironic exchangeability with life onto a canvas by performing the acts of building, annihilating, and eventually, birthing and revealing anew.
