If a Fissure Beneath, 51" x 43"
Oil on Canvas.
“I feel these works are some sort of intervention on a body or territory with all these incisions, trenches, and light passing through. They start revealing some kind of geography of uncharted land, bodies showing their inner structure. "If a fissure beneath" is an invitation to see deep into the cracks where light bends, distorts, and begins to fade.
My work takes the surface as a platform to research ideas on the relationship between abstraction and figuration, colour and scale, the poetic and the mundane, or the hidden and the visible. Whether in the open mouth of a grocery bag or behind heavy drapes and torn papers, the images remaining on a veiled plane intermediate between these relationships are an invitation to an inner world. They record the passage from one space to another and the veil that divides them."
