ARTIST STATEMENT

My practice is an attempt to actualise an immanent world without boundaries.

Through investigations in the potentials of art beyond representation, my works explore, unwind and entangle in the manifolds of daily encounters and inner conditions to transduce their oscillations.

I intend to catalyse the expression of the incomprehensible connections among the layered realities of living related to our feelings and imaginations.  The relationship between sensation, affect and experience is an important aspect of my research.

Borrowing Deleuze’s concept of the fold, I unfold the infinite realities with the media.  The creative process is a journey of discovering fragments of realities and folding them to become works of art.
