Series of prints, Exhausting, features seemingly unrelated forms: from Earth map to circles, lines, spots, and human shapes. The flatness of these forms, achieved through monochrome black, grey and vivid yellow, is periodically disturbed by seemingly chaotic lines; but, however random these carefully placed elements may appear as they stretch out of the paper format, they are not in any easily recognised relationship.
Such unrelatedness implies too a subconscious narrative: where the feeling of lack of control or relational content is feared. On the other hand, this awareness also opens the space for a sense of acceptance: that through the complexity of our sublime minds we share contextual similarities within: namely our existential linkages.
