The work references the nuances of perceptual experience. Investigated from a bodily point of view, figures often disperse through a gradual process of reworking. Notions of chance are unearthed through a mingling of sorts, where forms interact in peculiar transactions. This exchange is sought through re-contextualizing varying planes of narrative. The physical properties of the medium are measured against the resulting imagery that materialises.
