My artistic practice is specifically concerned with the reproduction of forms and movements that reflect sequential, exponential, cyclical or symmetrical gestures. These serve well to evoke processes like those of evolution and transformation, or notions of transcendence and absolutes. During my MFA studies at University at Buffalo I designed my drawing practice with the purpose to experience these types of gestures physically, mentally, and/or emotionally. I take the gestures from my unexpected visual thoughts. These are like visions, given by my awareness of a correlation between my nervous system and my visual field. I relate them to universal principles, to ways in which energy functions and ultimately, to ways in which I behave. The process allows me to enter a contemplative state of mind, because of the repetitive aspect of the method and the level of concentration it requires. My drive is to become conscious about how the characteristics found in my visual thoughts are part of myself and to practice integrating them within my conscious experience in order to evolve, transform, transcend and to connect deeper with my relationship to the ineffable.
