Painting Letters, Writing Images
There are a thousand ways to paint a word – once you begin looking at it as an image. My work is about this idea; that the shapes of letters can express more than just words. An experimental calligraphy practice with evolving tools has become my way to make sense of the world and to express emotions and ideas.
I work by building and repurposing writing tools and by fixating the fast paced choreography of calligraffiti letters in still images, I aim my brushes, garden-sprayer and rakes at the alphabet – in order to evoke the type of beautiful mistake that reflects character, emotions and conviction.
This idea of finding character through irregularities has lead me to the concept of System Errorr – my current body of work in which I experiment with custom writing tools that produce lots of glitches, textures, and favourite accidents.
