BEHIND THE LINES
Sumi ink drawings, 2005 – Present
These are a collection of then and now, from the first discovery of sumi ink in 2005. I obsessively drew iconography of the Japanese landscape and the perverse undertones that permeate the society. Edging the line between erotic and playful these works represent the ongoing compulsive tendencies to illustrate whats on my mind.
NEW YORK, NEW WORK
Works in progress
These are the part of the first series of non objective and experimental paintings created in NYC in 2017. Portraits of a time and place reflective of the true ideals of American art. Industrialism meets anarchy, freedom vs formality, order from chaos.
THIS BEACH CRAZY
Byron Bay | Sumi ink on paper & canvas
For some the beach is a place where people gather stripped down immersed in a hedonistically natural playground; for others it’s where human existence stops at the edge of the map.
Solo Exhibition | Rotterdam NL
Solo Exhibition at Deelen Art Rotterdam, NL. This show included works on paper canvas photography and a video installation. Created around the Neverland of Nymphs The silent sirens of Byron Bay want be seen and not heard.
Sumi ink works, Tokyo | 2004-2010
From the early exploration of the sumi ink medium created while in Tokyo. This collection of landscapes and portraits not only allowed me to experiment with the medium but also discover the sentimental vibration of the Japanese culture.
Sumi ink prints, 2010
Inspired by the Japanese tradition of Gyotakuprints originating from the mid-19th century fishermen documenting their catch. Over time the prints were used as an early form of photo transfer to record the memory of the catch before it is eaten. As well as a subtle boasting charm to show off to the other fishermen and family members. In this same process I have made transfer prints on rice paper of the underwear from women I have experienced and remain in my memory.
