Indian ink on paper 2019 70x100cm

The abstract work is divided into the two main series/techniques; Linescapes of imperfection and Complexity (displayed image).  Complexity is pointing towards the chaos and complexity in this world. Linescapes of imperfection is born as out of control issues, perfectionism and fear of failing.

After having done a number of live virtual exhibition shows. I found that I had time to talk more deeply about my work than I had with the actual visitors of the exhibition. This inspired me to record a video walking through the exhibition talking about each piece. 

 

Walk through the exhibition Linescapes- order of chaos and entropy with me.
