About my work

Method, mixed media.

I have specialized in transparent techniques such as washed ink, an old Chinese technique that later developed more in Japan, and diluted acrylic paint. The transparency that these techniques offer helps me see through the material world as through a layered structure. The first layer of the work is a background of washed ink with brushes on the paper. This allows organic forms to appear. Pastel involves manual application, direct contact with the material and the canvas. My fingers become paintbrushes that are in touch with the pastel layers. This part of the work must be done very carefully to make sure the depth of layers remains visible.
