Artist's description:

It is particularly relative to the way that I have to process the materials and to the way I organise the information makes it clearer. It is a way for me to express the way that I see things and the way that I express my feelings and emotions which helps me find my voice.

Photography is used for the basis of all my work. However, photography has made me realised that the camera catches only what is in the moment which is only a sliced of what is actually happening. For instance, everybody is in motion and slightly dipping ahead, slightly turning or weighting themselves, capture of a sense of the real and physical body.

However, there are challenges in figurative pieces. Firstly, trying to control the representation of the body is very complicated, rendering the body to become a scene. There are many nuances within the body that requires a magnified observation. There is also the difference between using the body to making other things as opposed to create a painting that is essentially formal and possibly abstract. Shapes and colours. It is trying to find the exact hand gesture and the way of person stands, sits, twists, turns, weights, unweight and facial expression. Those things have become dramatic as opposed to formal issues. I believe that the body as a person in a context around objects and other bodies can be dynamic.
