My abstract paper works involve a long process through which I first paint on both sides of several sheets of paper and, once dried, shred them into strips that then are interwoven into rectangular pieces. In this process of painting, cutting and weaving, the randomness of compositions is doubled, giving my art a unique organic presence similar to collage.
By exposing the materiality of the painted surface on both sides and its edges, my compositions utilize the painted surface as a new medium for creativity; they help the viewer see what paintings are truly made of.
The compositions are three-dimensional patterns in which the physical properties of the painted surface dictates the form the piece assumes, creating a situation in which a thing is exposed to be made of its own smaller parts
