Painting and drawing is one of the most immediate way of gestating an idea. It is much quicker as opposed to the long and technical process of ceramics, which is why –even in my ceramic work—it is a valid translator between perception and creation. It also allows for exploration of thought processes and just how we respond to a certain stimulus. Drawing and painting is not only a tool by which to gather information, but a tool of communication. I think it grounds us, as human beings, allowing for subconscious communications and conversations to occur between us all without embellishing words upon everything.
