My work is a continuation of a visual journey, capturing the notion of place and time as reflected through nature and the urban space that one inhabits. I find myself dealing with two separate aspects, nature and our urban environment.
The aesthetics of my surroundings are important and this is why I treat the fusion of nature and urban objects with utmost fragility. Words to describe my work include geometric abstraction, spatial presence and line. I am beginning to introduce the word constructivism as I feel that I am constructing through my printing, drawing and photographing.
What further interests me is how my prints emerge. I allow the printing process to be experimental, unlike the first stage when drawings and photographing. I try not to control the method as it is through the actual process of printing and the use of colour that create my prints.
