We all need a certain frame of reference, a boundary
- a structural space within which the spirit can freely roam.
Without the right kind of structure, we wander aimlessly, chaotically.
With it, we wander with purpose.
My work is a purposeful wandering in a defined space – be it a grid, a shape, or a volume.
Free associations tumble within the structure, intriguing and playful, of today, of yesterday, and of tomorrow.
Superhero characters, cereal boxes, old billboard ads remind me of where I come from.
Urban buzz and breaking news bring me into the moment. A pause in the busy day is something I look forward to.
The images appear and disappear with each paint stroke and random thought.
The element of surprise is always there, waiting to be discovered, just around the corner.
An immigrant-wanderer and a product of different cultures, I long ago left the constraining structures
of my native homes for a wider space where my spirit can be free to roam.
In the process, as in my artwork, I have learned to love the journey, expect the unexpected, and go with the flow.
