The works are a part of a recurring series that I have been working on throughout my career. I am fascinated with lines and how they can shape and mold anything into existence. My works start out as photographs – in this instance a piece of cloth. But I never see what I paint as a piece of cloth.
It is a series of paths; of beginnings and ends that are connected, intertwined and overlap. The lines create their own space and exist in their own plane. They wish neither to be 2D nor 3D. They have no intention of forming the piece of cloth that inspired their existence. They are just moving and carrying on their paths together. It is about discovery and journey.
Through this I wish to achieve a sense of atmosphere and reality in my works that begin behind a lens as one thing, passes through me and finds its way onto the canvas as something else. As an artist, I wish to share the way I view my subjects and hopefully this is a journey that the audience can take with me.
