Art Description

Drawing: Paper, Ink, Paint on Paper.

Inscriptions of words, text are absolutely central and words often occupy the mental horizon of my smaller works.

The words allude to legends, stories, histories, memories. The words and images sometimes are veiled. Sometimes the content of the words are not visible, the character and dimension of the content are to be kept secret, known only to me. Through metaphoric imagination, and a process of “rewriting” I discover stories, narratives fragments, pieced together into a ruptured whole, adopting different materials, methods and approaches, using fragile, everyday materials, deliquescent raw materials. Its about rehabilitating what has been forgotten, where the past and present interpenetrate as form and interact as content. Stories, History, myth, symbols, memory become a material, making a connection between disparate things and thus creating a meaning.

I think in writing as subject and as an important implication in the creative process. The distinction between drawing and writing often breaks down. Writing as pictorical, as “sculptural” writing.
