My work is an attempt to grasp the elusive and ephemeral. It is an everyday practice, I am looking at things around me; nature, the sky, light… I am dealing with simple ideas, expressing observations of time, space, light and life. The material elements in my work are not accorded solely an object character, but as instruments, serve a function. Layers of molded paint form paraboloidal shapes that protrude from the wall; voids, reflections and acoustic reverberations are experienced anew by each individual who interacts with the work. Time, date and location-based titles and catalogue numbers reference a position of work within a larger series, presenting a system for recording my life and gesture as an artist.
