Artist’s Statement

« Freedom. Release.

I draw lines freely, without constraints, and hand-paint directly onto surface.
I do not contemplate what it looks like.
There is no need for it to be anything.
Painting and drawing may give a sense of freedom. However, if I rationalize it, this freedom only starts from where one wants to be free. In the end, I am not sure if the work frees me or I free myself.

Using color makes me even more free.
The contrast between black and the other colors frees me further while I paint.

The only thing that doesn’t change is the relationship between the painted work and the person who confronts it.
What does it look like?
Can a spectator see an image in it?

Communication.

Sometimes, I feel bad about how little I try to communicate as a piece evolves.
But the inconvenience of having to justify it is very romantic, and gives me another perspective.

The freedom that I truly desire may be just a little « romantic inconvenience. »
And I feel that as such, my true self is expressed in my work. »
