My work explores what animates a gesture.  The materials exert significant influence every time I try to make sense by forming. I focus on the image as a surface where the visual form and its material ground merge. Working on this surface, the creative gesture seems akin to a living being, twisting and unfolding in unexpected ways. Any conscious effort is enriched or even reshaped by the particularities of the material, its resistance or evocative maleability. My interest in grasping what makes a creative gesture constantly transforms my work to include all types of material. From graphite to clay to the use of hair, I am interested in how the movement of the hand, tracing a form, draws some form of sense that based on the material transcends the visible.
