For the past 10 years, I have worked closely with clients diagnosed as mentally ill. If you aren’t working in a psychiatric ward, you will never know what that experience is like. The often harsh, emotional and physical encounters and experiences that human beings endure in their life time. Through the art making process.
My work, in its abstraction, frees me to say what I feel and see. It becomes the holding space where I express the political, emotional and physical spirit of my surroundings and my reactions to what I witness. My art becomes a dialog between myself and the canvas, expressed through colors, composition and marks, manifesting into an abstract story.
