Flow as the basis for being or becoming emerges naturally from the chaotic and ordered, en-tropic and emergent interactions of ink in water. I believe that ink and water can reveal the connection between our living environment and our lived experience in a way that seeks communication or communion rather than control. Ink and water are a dynamic intervention that can be either artificial (affected) or natural (emergent). I prefer to utilize my material’s natural and emergent qualities to reconsider how existence emerges not from nothingness but from change. Ink and water mutually influence each other’s movements; we may say that there is no difference between subject and object, rather, both, perceiving and being perceived, controlling and being controlled, changing and being changed are encapsulated in the same continuum. Such inter-dependent, inter-penetration between materials and their final realization in form and quality puts painting squarely in dialog with the new knowledge domains of our era such as chaos and complexity theory, condensed-matter physics, neuro-phenomenology and ecological-humanism.
