“I examine plants, growth, colour, matter, and something inexplicable from an ontological perspective. I look at the endless metamorphosis between the matters, rub pigment on the linen, and see myself reflected in it. I paint colours that form endless layers, colour fields, images of worlds I did not know existed.”
