Through constant experimentation, I explore themes around control and abandon in works that range from representational to abstract. The contradictions evident in our structured society, such as nature versus man-made, are often represented to express the varying dynamics of control that we already accept.
Geometric shapes and organic loose marks are emphasized with artificial bright colors and a contrasting palette of natural, muted colors. The raw, organic essence plays an important role in my control, or lack of it, in making the work. Using abstracted representation of manmade forms of containment such as fences, buildings, and walls that trap the true nature.

This project reflects on the societal physical and mental barriers created by humans to contain and control nature. It expresses the connections between nature and humans as controlled living organisms in a structured society covered by lines, fences and boxes.
As nature, the creating process for each project evolved by an organic flow that followed no sequence, rules or expectations but always closely related to one another.

An endless cycle of understanding the abstract notions of tangible and intangible fences and how to disrupt them
