Intense color and the use of collage permits a diversity of expression which gives rise to works that are dynamic and multifaceted. I sometimes express a tendency towards narrating a story, at other times, I distance myself from traditional depiction. In my previous set of works I explored the human outline as a form of dialogue. The outline is a boundary which encloses aspects of the world while excluding others. This constant and creative interaction defines, in a profound manner, the individual and his or her environment. At present, I am focused on this defining function of the human outline in an effort to understand further its emotional, existential and social significance.
