I make gestural abstract drawings/ paintings which are a mix of spontaneity and control - one comes from nature and the other from culture. The drive is to create a balance with these two opposite forces - at times spontaneity taking control at other control has its way. In the process the textures and strokes create a sense of depth, rhythm, movement and emotional charge. At times the works are more calligraphic reminiscent of the written script in an effort to come up with personal symbols and language. I hope to invoke the primal forces in spirit through gestures, marks and strokes.
