What themes, techniques, and materials do you like to explore in your artwork?
I am a sketching man, starting with pencil and paper. I use them for chewing on an idea until I see what would be an appropriate manifestation of it. Drawing or graphic art in my opinion is quite sufficient to transport power to the viewer. It is instant; it is direct contact with the essence without mediating it with other, more finessed techniques.
Proper drawing eventually leads to transcending the phenomena of simple appearance. Once it has left the plane of superficial depiction, it becomes a tool for perception.
