|First Name and Last Name||
I am interested in how pigments leave traces of human interconnectedness across geography and time. I work by researching historical events which have resonance with what is happening in the now. I then find out which pigments played out in those events, and that determines the colours in any particular collection. I then make abstract pieces which play with sensations of space and time, that are suggestive and not didactic. There is a moment of poetry when the viewers associations meet with the pigment associations and mine in the painting.
