現 Between The Lines

Artist Statement

When I place the first mark on a surface, I am acutely aware of the space surrounding it. This space possesses a palpable presence that evolves with each mark. It is neither neutral nor void. This work draws influence from Chinese calligraphy and its brushwork. Using ink and substrates that are susceptible to change and transformation, this performance aims to bring a focus to the intangible presence between indexical markings. Not dissimilar to ‘reading between the lines’ where oblique articulations and unspoken meanings manifest, and as the gap between marks becomes an expandable presence.
