About

Artist Statement:
When I moved to Australia, the feeling of “home” and “belonging” was a major force diving my work. This resulted in abstract paintings based on common links of place; of where I come from and the country I now call home.
Unforeseen events saw the medical doctor in me turned into a patient. The terrain for exploring the human body and its processes as a subject matter consumed me. Inspired by my daily clinical practice, I have been exploring a different aspect of the human-nature relationship, where common ground between landscape and the human body is revealed.
My technique involves the building up of multiple layers of paint where a link between nature and body is found. This begins with shapes taken from sketches, photos and X-ray films of various medical processes. Each layer participates in an exercise of response by removing all figurative elements, creating an emotional visual expression. These semi-transparent layers create a visible history of mark making, aided by the application of brisk brushstrokes and by the use of multiple materials such as acrylics, oils, charcoal, gesso, paper, and gel amongst others.
