‘Attuning to nothingness through complexity - Often I’m involved with the idea that you can paint or draw something terribly complex and through making it, the complexity reduces to something unitary. I seek this absence though a process that involves intense scrutiny. The process of reducing elements as a material way of reaching the essence of subject matter, is exposed in a digital animation of the life cycle of energy between the two related paintings.'
