ABOUT

STATEMENT

I cover and re-cover the mistakes
I sort, match and align the shapes and colours
I repeat forms in rows, in columns
I outline
I scrape and repair

Inspired by a handwritten calligraphy notebook from childhood my artistic production aims to show the beauty of the mistake, to explore repetition and process. Freed from seeking perfection, I create asymmetrical structures across the canvas. In a methodical disorder, these structures often recall known landscapes and experiences.

"...Most of all, the acceptance and celebration of making marks no matter how ‘imperfect’ they may be, make these paintings vibrant and beautiful. She draws, paints, makes mistakes, covers, and develops her paintings over a period of time, building a history much like life, learning from mistakes and building off them." (Anita Frost)

I work with the juxtaposition of colours and textures, and endless superposition of them on many layers. Layers that together tell the story behind.I invite you to submerge into this colourful world of imperfections.
