“I perceive the artistic process to be coherent with processes that characterise existence at large — a journey towards complexity and understanding. We can observe uniformity in systems that are distinctly orderly as well as in systems that are distinctly chaotic, such as a forever repeating pattern or a sea of uninterrupted noise. Complexity combines both of these elements, a dance between order and chaos. Through this dynamic interplay we see emergence, matter gives rise to biology, biology to psychology, psychology to language, language to culture and so on and so forth. As I believe is the case with all things that fill us with a sense of meaning, I see my practice as a continuation of this process — focusing complexification into the subtleties of colour harmony, loose forms and texture. It's a journey towards something unknown, guided by the aim of beauty.”
