I discovered i contain emotions and other forces in my body and being. Unaddressed dynamics. They want to be consumed and integrated. They desire existence. Through me. This is how i became a poetic alchemist.
My works emerge intuitively. Nothing is designed, directed or composed. I plant seeds on paper and herd them into microcosmic gardens. They reveal unseen forces. Fertile microcosmic movements. From within and without.
'We are microcosmic eruptions.'
CHAOS AND PATTERNS
Life responds to itself. In glorious chaos and patterns, in the ever expanding and contracting movement of cyclic principles in nature and the vast skies. Our molecules are galaxies. Our emotions are galactic forces, and so are our movements and encounters (human and non-human).
I use brush, crayon and pencil aquarel on paper. I deeply enjoy my body when i'm drawing: the sensory tenderness; the extended focus; the enchantment of the colours and movements.
