93 x 126 cm            ink on paper


When walking through the coastal areas near where I live on the Central Coast, I take photos of the bushland and waterways. At home, I print out the photos I am interested in and set down to draw my own interpretation of what I experience in that scene.
'Mangroves' was drawn with permanent pigment ink pens. I find these pens enable me to explore every moment and step through this environment in a graphic and detailed way; not as a direct representation but with a creative and exploratory process.

‘Convergence’ is one of a series of paintings that explore the relationship between the human figure and the environment. The landscape in this series is mostly the urban landscape of Northern India where I have spent extended periods of time over the years. There is a particularity to this landscape that has allowed me to explore relationships between organic and geometric shapes, echoing traditional, new and ad hoc architectural elements within the environment.

Jogakbo I

53 x 52 cm             crayon and ink on paper


In my Jogakbo painting series, Korean sentiments were used more actively than others. Jogakbo is a traditional Korean quilt cloth that has been made for hundreds of years, and it was made to recycle discarded materials rather than to be made for a particular purpose. Korean women used their sewing skills to create unique and personal patterns using the geometric shapes and colours of the fabric itself.  With the traditional aspects, Jogakbo pattern is accepted as one of the design elements that represent Korean beauty today. However, the pattern is still being used in textile designs or Korean paper crafts despite its artistic potential. I adopted the aesthetic value of Jogakbo in my crayon painting, excluding the functionality. Also, the colours based on Obangsaek emphasise Korean sentiments. Jogakbo I consists of several rectangles with soft colours, as a result, it creates a very stable, gentle feeling.
