Artist in Residence at Arteles Creative Center, Hämeenkyrö, Finland.
During my time at Arteles I explored tapestry weaving techniques as a method for drawing. Working intuitively, I unearth vibrant patterns from a foundation of monochromatic lines. Each shift of direction these horizontal wefts take culminates in an optical pattern, disrupting the linear surface of the drawing. As these patterns pulse ephemerally atop the solid black and white surface, they allow an in-between space to come forth and be perceived as an entity.
