In much of my work, solitary figures placed in undefined painterly spaces seem to have a readiness to let go and disperse into the immediate surrounding, loosening and becoming part at the same time. As paintings, these works investigate the boundaries of the body as a mass and an outline. The abstract background that is often composed with loose paint strokes, reminiscent of seismographical recordings, interacts with the figures, somewhat carrying or holding them. It is this in-between state of letting go until the arrival into the unknown that interests me. Dispersing and disappearing even, and having faith in oneself, stretched into eternity.
