I find interest in imperfection and profundity in nature’s impermanence. My work begins with mono-printed stains and drippings worked over extensively with drawing, transforming them into abstract organic forms. There is an amalgam of oppositions: the internal in fusion with the external, the underground with the celestial, past with future and archaeology with science.
