Untitled, 2021, ink on paper

This body of work is situated in a liminal space between pictorial production and image perception. They are emphatically about drawing - pictorial construction in the most elemental sense, a profusion of minuscule lines marked with ink on paper. Their paths criss-cross, overlap, parallel, repeat and cumulate on the surface. In a pictorial encounter, what emerges is ultimately a negation of cumulative and laborious acts of mark making. They become immersive fields, an emergence through negation.
