The accidental laws of physics and nature,
the absoluteness of ‘time’.
Behind everything in the universe lies concealed an elegant but elusive scientific formula.
The world we see is but a convenient and simplistic approximation,
its true nature only revealed to us in riddles and abstractions.
It it from this humbled perspective and a professional history in
architectural design that I draw inspiration

As for the subject of the ocean wave,
it represents for me not just physical beauty and force
but also a progression in time;
a long languid journey from afar, a chaotic deconstruction… then nonexitstence
And as for the subject of ‘time’ itself,
an abstraction as omnipotent and poorly understood as it is,
surely is a subject deserving of artistic reflection
even if fully unresolved.
