These diptychs are about the attached textual layers that create a superficial meaning,

The layers of interpretation and manipulations that supersede the material reality of ink on paper. Can the upper half exist without the lower half with the text?

This work is a part of a much larger project investigating the being of strategies. The drawings are part of the exercise ‘the reality of being present’, which investigates surviving the agony of attention, in this age where nothing is what is seems to be.
