THE ARTWORK ON DISPLAY: FEMALE PORTRAITS OF ESSENCE
In my work I capture expressions, feelings, moods and mental states. It’s facinating how each of us have our unique way, which is shown in facial expression, body gesture and our overall presence. In the past I have never used images or photos of faces, most of my portraits are developed through improvisation inspired by female characters I have come across.
My works always have a theme or a story behind them which I express in a abstract and sureal manner. My large drawings, which I have named the Wirehead’s, have evolved from a long history of sketching. I call it structured improvisation; combination of uncontrolled and controlled chaos with some identifiable characteristics. Working with the same theme over the past ten years, has given me a wider view of possibilities.
