In this series of works, I attempt to find the third dimension through the use of different materials. Initially, I removed paint from the artistic equation by slicing the works, combining canvas and paper with selected materials.
Gradually, the slicing gained more importance, a reflection, perhaps, of my increased desire to be more aggressive. The result, however, although possessing more physical dimension, remained static and I realized paint was needed to provide freshness and movement.
Embroidery provides another element as it created thick shadows with organic shapes. When combined with light, these shapes offer different views of the work to various observers.
