Artist Statement

My study revisits a noteworthy approach in art and is bringing new light to the subject.
I believe when a line moves in speed, the conscious mind releases the control of the subconscious. Imagery embedded is found and my drawings so far have proven it possible. From the scribble lines of the Surrealist Andre Breton and the dribble lines of Jackson Pollock, the subject of ‘drawing from the psyche’ has been left untouched.
I am pushing this discovery further into highlighting signature-like flourish lines and explore their significant role in the study. My compositions are found from a page of scribble lines..without alterations.
