Beyond the physical manifestation of every space and text, I believe that they contain an ‘invisible presence’. My artwork translates this intangible essence and experience of spaces and text in the form of tangible abstract drawings through painting, rather than the usual method of writing, to reveal the complexity of emotions found within. This is my way of interpreting form and space and revealing its sacred geometry, hidden philosophy and inherent meaning.
My artwork is created using the medium of gouache and Indian ink on hot-pressed paper.
