About my artwork
Every culture has at least one hymn, poem or monument about some great longing at the borders of the void.
Human life seemingly plays out on the continuum between our yearnings and desires on one end, and processes of mourning and loss on the other.
In the end, it’s all about choice and transformation.
My work creates a space and an engagement with the viewer's conscious awareness.
Artists I like
Marina Abramovic, Janine Antoni, Joseph Beuys, Los Carpinteros, Francesco Clemente, Harrell Fletcher, Philip Guston, Rebecca Horn, Lisa Kaftori, Suzanne Klotz, Agnes Martin, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Gabriel Orozco, Adrian Piper, Taras Polataiko, William Pope.L, Bob Rauschenberg, David Shrigley, Do-Ho Suh, Sigi Torinus, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, James Turrell, Bill Viola, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Kara Walker...more...
Latin and ballroom dancing (currently salsa, cha cha, bolero), rhythms, writing, meditation, contemplation, laughter, collaborations, non gallery collaborations, audiowork, creativity, space.
Centre of the artworld:
nowhere and everywhere

Hello Sophia,
there have been a lot of glitches on the site recently since they tried to "up-grade" it. Apparently the person to contact with any problems (I still have one or two) is Nick Tong. He seems to be some kind of "web designer". Humm.
Cheers, Mik

Hey Sophia!
I finished my last day of teaching today - only one day of assessment to do next week, then I'm free 'till September - yippee! As soon as I've moved out of the studio at the end of this month I should have more time for painting and everything else.
You okay?
