"After a period of contemplation and
relishing its wow and flutter, the subsidence of sensation is what I aim to capture in my
line, use of colour and shapes. Upon arriving at that zero point, it is
not intended that I am left adrift with a sense of despair, neither is it that I grapple
with expired fragments of feeling. Rather I relish what life does offer and am
illuminated by it. At the level of subsidence, I am becalmed."
