As most of my work is figurative, I seem to associate its genesis in my daydreams. Although some of the dreams are aspirations for the future, most of them relate to nostalgic memories and experiences, such as afternoon sun on a summer’s day in Berlin or the cool-to-warm temperature ratio of the air after a spring rain. My motivation is to ultimately preserve these little moments so they do not get lost in the monotony of the day to day. The synesthetic color choices and anthropomorphic geometries of my work are my methods of confronting memory decay and preserving experience. My practice is a meditative one, in which I create from thousands of small pieces to form the whole. It is heavily rooted in the haptic sensations of daily life and emotions, described by Hume as intrinsic to the human ethos. It is also evocative of my affinity for the colore manner of painting and sculpting during the Baroque. I do not create so that everything can align symmetrically; I diffuse light, bend lines, soften and harden accordingly.
