Drawing and Painting

“Exploring the concept of temporality. Pushing the boundaries of the archive within abstract art. Through material, colour and process, these ideas turn into works that will attempt to continuously resist the test of time and urge to keep one question in the back of the mind: Is there a purpose to creating art that lasts?”
