“There’s the cloud in the sky, a line in the sand and a little picture in my hand. I am an awkward scholar of sight, a follower of roads and dreams, just a connector of all kinds of lines, shapes, and colours. I try to find life’s essence in the linear connectedness of things and places and people. I hope that my moments and coincidences will last a little longer than just passing incidents. My work is simply a conglomerate of moments.
