‘For some years my work is determined by a desire for analogue form language, which relates to life issues raised by Zen Buddhism. I am guided by the cycles of time, nature and space. The rising and setting sun, the changing seasons, how we relate to this.
I explore the deeper invisible layers that manifest in our subconscious mind. It's not about the most beautiful or perfect image. It is about the earthly - the materiality and organization of the world around us, our nature - that leads us to the mutual relationship of all things.’
