  • Catalogue Essay

    It is my motivation and desire to explore the ontological possibilities and limits of painting. The space inhabited by the viewers, which has traditionally been the spatial location, context and site specificity of works of art, is shared and exists within my painting as void spaces. The canvas is spatially fragmented creating void spaces within the painting, which interplay with the canvas and surface medium. More importantly these void spaces function as a constituent part of my language of painting. Hence, these void spaces inform the viewers’ visual
    perception about the painting while inducing a tension between the viewers’ space and these void spaces. They oscillate between the pictorial illusionism of the painting and space which the viewers occupy.
