Lot Essay

I get a lot of inspiration from paintings. When I go to museums I generally make a beeline for the painting galleries. I consider myself a painter in the sense of the tradition of the handmade image, which takes us right back to the caves. That's my lineage, though I use different tools. I also work with sound. But fundamentally I'm interested in moving images
