INNER HUMAN

Inner Human is a series of drawings and paintings of imaginary, non-realist, human form. They are worked out on canvas or paper without planning or preliminary work. 

“The only journey is the one within.”

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)

 

'The broad marks and how they relate to one another suggest what I   call ‘Life-ness’. These marks are a sensation or an emotion. Co-existing are smaller marks that feel like intrusive thoughts or a need   to pin down. It is the placement and relationship between these marks that suggests an inner life. A human wearing a feeling of life that is suddenly exposed or abruptly discovered.'
