My practice is rooted in the Process Art movement. I paint, glue, sand and tear away multiple layers of paintings. I often collage rust, plastic, fabric and other materials to that compound surface. The rigorous process of tearing finished paintings, adding and rebuilding layers of unlikely materials in order to merge the distressed surface into one coherent image, metaphorically alludes to the power play throughout history. It is about forces that tear the fabric of societies, and the creation of new reality from the old fragments. It invokes the reexamination of cultural legacies and historical events and their weight on the present.
