I’m always seeking balance. Fluctuating between temperature, forms of movement, vibrancy, and texture – my painting practice helps me achieve a sense of balance in a tactile way, through these subtle elements.
The challenge i’ve set for myself is to tune in to the subtleties that are within me – lingering on them long enough that they can then transfer onto the canvas/paper. This process of painting has become more interesting and informative than the painting itself. This stream of consciousness painting forces me to follow my gut instinct, to listen more intuitively, and has become a way of documenting the rhythm of the way my mind moves, like an alternative form of meditation.
My sketchbook gives me an opportunity to look outward – to absorb the visual delights of my surroundings, and record them on paper. They are layered in the ever-changing flux of time and carry a playful interpretation of these fleeting moments with a sense of permanence.
