My work is the result of a desire to create a narrative space that will allow for the exploration of movement without motion, for the search of rhythm in the silence and fluidity of life. It is driven by the need to record time, to articulate a presence, to encapsulate a plethora of experiences and moments, and to denote the transient nature of beings and things, while accentuating the ephemerality and volatility of being. Entities and places become excuses for capturing a moment of stillness in the continuous flow of existence. Brushstrokes become tools that reveal moods, gestures and purposes.
In Erin Manning's words: "And so we find ourselves looking toward the beyond of form, to the drift where paint and figure no longer coincide, to the very quality of the background, which, if we observe long enough, becomes foreground. And here, in the betweenness of figure and drift, what we see, again - for this is the refrain - is movement in its infinite instability. And here, with this instability, comes the sense that there are bodyings in the offing, not figures or forms, but movements in the making." [Excerpt from the essay Adrift by Erin Manning].
