“Through an intuitive process of accumulating and scattering lines, digressions in narratives, and often-abandoning subjects, drawing is a dynamic and fundamental part of myself. A part that is both embedded in history and continually changing. I work in the same way that an author revises text, constructs sentences, edits words, deconstructs sentences, and rubs out ideas. The objective of correction fascinates me. Seemingly, this idea of refinement relies on an elusive pursuit for perfection. I rely more on provisionality and possibilities than on completed resolutions. Throughout my work, I attempt to discern the impulse of correction and reevaluate the influence of logic.”
