About the Solo Exhibition

" I'm a painter, I make paintings drawings, printmaking, and ceramics. Sketching is a habit I developed since childhood and the starting point of my painting. I use drawing-in the moment and from observation-to capture the energy and vitality of my encounters with my partner, Chloe, my cat, and our shared environment. A sense of touch, intimacy, and closeness are crucial to my practice as I translate the drawings into paintings.

As I translate the drawings into paintings, my interaction with the canvas and paint replaced my interaction with the subject, and the subject matter in the painting becomes a symbolic carrier, conveying the essence of painting. I will not refer to the original natural appearance of the subject at this stage but concentrate on the painterly issue - the fine balance between spontaneity and control, vitality, velocity, emphasis, energy, rhythm, etc. - that has existed for hundreds of years. "
