I like the word Zoom. I especially like how it feels in my mouth. As I write, I recall the vibrations that bounce off the tip of my tongue and rattle between my teeth as the sound slips out. This humming, buzzing sound, a breve (double whole note) if you will, moves and stretches like a string of gum being pulled from my mouth.

Observe the movement of the gentle strokes in some of my later work, how they pose alone, an uncertain distance from the surface of the print, both sporadic and carefully crafted; See the scaffold of the prints before, slender strict lines that dart from one join to the next circle; Witness the heavy sections of colour dished on to the abstract canvas, detect a different tone, a different pitch in each shade.

"This practice aims to convey a visual language that demonstrates the fluid ambiguity of meaning, hence of reading; through discourse, design, and changing contexts.

This study of semiotics challenges linguistic traditions, methods of curation, and medium, but more intensively it confronts the connotation forced and attached to particular words.

Deconstruction and Deconstructivism theory fuel this. They intend to tilt, to fragment, and to stylize forming a dysfunctional and seemingly misguided structure, making way for an accessible alternative freedom within language."
