Spontaneity

         

        I started painting spontaneously.
                                                             Experimented with various materials and mediums
                                                to explore methods
                                                                                               to aid in my search  
                          for an answer
                                                                                                             as to why I spontaneously started painting.
                                                                             

                                                                          At a young age

                                                                                                            I
                                                                                                                             Juxtaposed

                                                                                               neolithic methods
        and Dada CONcepts.

                                                             
                                                                                                                     I began to explore
                   my inner consciousness
                                                         using random chaos theory
                                                                                                         whereby
                                  my work gradually evolved
                                                                                 into
                                                                                        what

                                                                                 it is.
