The threaded lines suggest a physical barrier that interrupts the shapes and stops them from connecting and at the same time a transparency is created that allows the viewer to enter through the lines onto the painted surface.

The titles of each series can be interpreted as emotional, psychological and physical conditions.

This piece from the series Snap is a repetitive horizontal thread drawing across a painted ground that expands and explodes, creating a warped and physical sensation of space.

The tension in the lines feels like it could snap.
