artistic statement

In my artistic research, I address uncertainty and the accompanying feeling of emptiness. When incorporating the concept of adjacency, I am often confronted with the interplay between numbness and activity. I like to paint in the state of not knowing where to position myself, aware of something fleeting. 
I draw inspiration from observing the ambient aspects od my close surroundings. By "ambient", I mean the elements that frame the atmosphere of a space, like sound, movement, light, architecture, and vegetation. 

By exploring different paints and mark making on the canvas, I aim to define intimate spaces, which invite curiosity and imagination to thrive. Preparing this framework guides my concentration to places within the image that incite both excitement and calm. These are places that allow me to be still and have the opportunity to listen, while also instilling in me an eagerness to take action. During the process, my relationship to the painting changes many times. I have to disengage from it in order to expose myself to it. It is only within this dialogue of vulnerability that the painting reveals new paths and narrations.
