1. What is you personal/aesthetic relationship to the line? That is, how do you understand it, use it, etc.
Immediately what is called to mind, is Wm. Blake’s insistence on “the bounding line and it’s infinite inflexions and movements”. I see the line as a means to give merciful boundaries to the Imaginative forms that I am bringing forth. The line in my work, activates the image.
2. Do you find a relationship between art and the human body? Or between your art and your body?
Again, Mr. Blake…”Man has no body distinct from his Soul”. It is in the realm of the Soul from which my paintings emerge. I did a whole show in Serbia based on the interaction of Body and Soul. Enormous transparent hands were printed on old maps and emerged from oceans and birds sat on the fingertips conversing with one another. Feet graced old chinese scrolls, hinting at pilgrimage and earth connection. And of course, wings were not excluded.
3. Is there anything you dislike about being an artist?
I am so grateful that I have the life of an artist, that I hesitate to complain. Perhaps the isolation, when you are an extroverted-introvert, can at times feel unnatural. I have come to terms with this necessity and the utter devotion and deep relationship with silence.
