There are days when sheets of paper pile up on the desk, and crayons and pencils lay scattered like pick-up sticks. Strewn coloured paper cuttings combine serendipitously to resemble geometric exercises based on different vantage points. I move through these planes of colour, set at labyrinthine angles. There are also days with only an empty sheet of paper and a pencil on the desk. Then the mathematical diagrams plunge softly into the gently multiplying matter of thickening space.
Drawing consists of joining invisible dots, reference points for potential, unlimited, unknown constellations. The two dimensional sheet can be expanded to include a number of other dimensions, whilst lines, running from one point to another, can reach new ones. These lines are like sentences that – resulting from one another – constitute their own grammar. As they intersect and turn, they follow an inner logic. When intertwining and interlocking, they form vibrating surfaces and constructions. Their palette ranges from blue and green, through red, turquoise, yellow and grey.
