I started painting by charting the stars. Then, in an effort to touch the invisible, I worked on representing both sound waves and the alloy formations of meteorites. Today, my paintings still reference these mapping languages, but also integrate new layers of expression, such as the language of geology. I observe them closely, and constantly search for vestiges of figuration through their abstraction, like paleontologists isolate fossils from soil.
