The heart of my artistic expression is a collection of sketchbooks which spans my existence since I started to write and draw. This body of work is a single entity, ever present, ever growing, a reflection of my life in real time. This ensemble is for me the he main tool of my trade as a conceptual artist and illustrator. Entries are interlaced from book to book in negation of space and time. All parts are dated but none kept in chronological order.
With the help of these books I "triangulate" past present and future. Each entry of any book relates to other entries on other books as elements of a rhizome network in which, at each perceived intersection, there can be formed a synaptic connection that manifest itself as a moment of extraordinary clarity and equilibrium, which is the base of my creativity as an artist..
