ARTISTS BIOGRAPHY

 All stories are derived from the Akashic (Sanskrit; Ether) records where according to Ervin Laszlo: “ …this Akashic Field is the element in the cosmos that records, conserves and conveys information.” It is believed that every emotion , action or thought throughout History, leaves an “imprint on this all-pervasive energetic substrate.” Like in Salman Rushdie’s  “Haroun and the sea of Stories” we will find in the deepest part of the ocean the currents that carry all the story lines. I choose to work with discarded materials because trapped in each found object lies a story, a history. These recovered materials and objects already present a visual voice. This becomes my point of departure.
