Walking near a construction site I realized that the traces on the rough floor of a shopping center still under construction left by the forklifts for transporting goods evoked the charcoal drawings of the Italian Futurists and their research on speed and movement. Indeed I’m interested in using a sense of mechanical abstraction in relationship to the elements in the photos and also in making dynamic, visually textured two-dimensional compositions that are graphic designs that rely on lines, planes of space, patterns. An aesthetic tension created by the lines, shapes and contrast.
