Artist's Statement

‘Scroll Series: Vaguely Sensual, Obsessively Organic’
A series of abstract painting/drawing that captures the vital energy of all living beings through microscopic scanning.

There’s a constant tug of war embedded in the organic undulations in my work. Symbols of waters and blood represent what we once were in the womb, life energy, and of my personal memory of my stillborn twin sister. My memory of her in the brief time in the womb has entirely prevailed in my unconsciousness. The vitality and non-stop evolutionary movement are what is going on in the center of my work. I record my personal time and space, as well as my raw emotions; excitement, anxieties, regrets, hope, frustration, shame, guilt and letting go of things. As writers use old-fashioned typewriters to tell their stories, I leave my own traces of being in a timely-manner on 10 yard-long paper rolls.
