I make both paintings and sculptures, and approach them in a similar way. Guided by intuition, I slowly build works by adding and subtracting elements until I discover forms that interest me. During this process, new layers of information don’t always completely cover previous gestures, and traces of earlier lines and colors create trails of my exploration. Although my works are nonobjective, they can function as Rorschach tests, at times evoking figures, floral bouquets, or rock formations (animal, vegetable, mineral), depending on the viewer’s inclination. I strive to create paintings and sculptures that are highly specific but not overdetermined. They are first and foremost new facts to be experienced.
