“This practice puts me in a strange position, where I operate more as an instrument of certain conditions rather than exectute a rigid program. My works are about time and places, about environemental sound that becomes space. I observe but don’t find words to describe my affections and realtions to what I See, instead I use abstraction which is build upon layers of textures, mark making and engages body into a sequences of conditioned reactions.”
