Abstraction is a language that rejects fluency and celebrates ambiguity.
It speaks from a place of resistance to knowing and saying everything.
To having to know and say everything.
It is a language that honors the unknown.
It is a language that honors being in all forms.
A meditation on seeing and listening.
There is a quality of action too.
Through the body.
Through the surface.
Through the support.
In the way the seed is mattered.

I often question the integrity of drawing and painting.
I often question the integrity of abstraction.
I want to make something that matters.
Usually I come to the conclusion it is the making that matters.
A ritual of materiality.
A ritual of transformation.
There is a voice speaking through material anyway.
There is a material question.
I am a material girl.
