‘key to my practice is a process of calculated spontaneity and pre-planned coincidence through which I work primarily with a combination of drawing and installation. through merging of material and context I explore the visual language of nautical folklore, which tells the story of faith, hope, love, and the struggle to get to the non-existing point in the horizon’. J.D.
