I work with anything I can get my hands on or anything that seems interesting. “This is how it should be done, this is right” is a thought that delightfully describes the physical act of my process. It is intuitive and unconsciously purposeful on some levels. The naive form feels like a haven to make understanding easier. The material is anything the artwork requires to be completed. I work fast and long, and my thoughts build up slowly between all the many layers. The movement repeats and repeats itself until finally, or by surprise, the work starts to make sense and take shape.
