Spontaneous gesture plays an important role in the initial stages of my works. I like the idea of coaxing a figure or its quasi-facsimile from the interplay of marks, lines, shapes and color-grasp it as I emerge from the general abstraction. Painting in the manner keeps me in touch with my own innocent eye and my inner self.
Though I create images after my own desires, all of my images aren’t gesturally conceived. I have, and probably always will borrow freely from a wide repertoire of cultural icons; for example Egyptian, Mexican, Africa, and others.
