“Naima” is a series of abstract drawings made by rubbing the paper onto the earth and grass in a place that holds a special significance for my personal life. The work serves as a trace: both of the action of imprinting the paper, and my own emotional landscape. Each drawing emerges behind my sight as a tangible record of the land’s textures, and my movements.
This singular technique was instinctively chosen by the need to physically manifest my sense of grief for a recent loss, imbuing the medium with a powerful emotional resonance.
