I see beauty in randomness: the pattern of leaves that have fallen on the grass, the snowflakes in front of the camera lens, the dog’s paw prints in the mud or the shadows of the trees on the wet tarmac.

    Biography

    I see beauty in randomness: the pattern of leaves that have fallen on the grass, the snowflakes in front of the camera lens, the dog’s paw prints in the mud or the shadows of the trees on the wet tarmac.

    Chance and my response to it, the choices that I make in reaction, and the deliberate use of repetition -be it in the recurring imagery, the action of the mark making or the tearing of the paper- are the essential building blocks in my work.

    Trying to capture the beauty I see in randomness I value an element of ambiguity in the work, because I believe that there are no certainties.

    Painting and drawing are the two constant elements of my work and they take turns in playing the leading role. They feed each other and are always connected.
