Her work is inspired by Japanese calligraphy. The twilight is an important part of her work. As in Japanese philosophy, dimensional space plays a key role in this spirit that sails between movement control and spontaneity. Hence arise abstract spaces with ink freezing the moment. A duality appears between features and the empty space. And thus the lines are generated by the energy flow and become truly alive. From the spirit, power flows to the body, which is channelled to the brush with no return.
Her works go more and more towards a minimalist style. The variations in the shape fluctuate to complement in the background. The background is selected in raw material purposely, like linen or wood, to increase the contrast.
The medium becomes a personality, like a reed or a branch wavering in the wind. Space inspires, the form marks the end or the beginning of the following cycle through the circle.
