I explore the materiality of language, the phonetic, visual and poetic dimensions of a text
or a word as a two-and three-dimensional entity in the context of human relations. I am
drawn to what lies among the uttered and the suppressed. For thinking dictates form, a
line, an accent, the cadence of silence, all conform narratives both in drawing and
I expose the intersection of the aural and the visual, one where words, text and
involuntary sounds are transformed into a visible, physical form.
I strip away from the narrative what is unnecessary in order to reveal its armature, leaving structural notions of the emotional experience. Eventually words are muffled, subtracted, removed from speech, configuring blocks or silent pauses.
