These large scale watercolours could be considered as psychological portraits, painted from both photographic references and intuition, they reflect various psychological states. This series conveys a kind of in-between state, beings are re-forming, becoming-animal or shifting into another zone; situated somewhere between reality and a dream-like state. This series is an ongoing body of work which explores a very fluid and automatic approach, allowing chance and the staining and bleeding of the watercolour to work in an uncontrolled and spontaneous way.
