An architectural module, a fragment of life, a relationship with the painting of ephemeral thought. A harmony in construction motivates me to draw. I imaginatively wonder, without restriction or hindrance. An endless conversation. Finding moments… moments of scale, lines and colour, of structures that carry an endless foundation. A virtual space that is a fragment of materiality. Architecture without limits or simply without function faces a world of fantasy that is at odds with reality. Within these realms I mean to create a sensual experience for the viewer. It is my participation in the ‘real’, the window angle, the resonance of the streets, of the cities and rooms, faces, shadows on the walls, silence, distance and brightness of stars.
A contradiction balanced precariously between imagined and real spaces, were my work encapsulating the disparity between architecture, art and life.
