Étude Op. 2 No. 4 [HIGH TIDE]
"Étude Op.2, No 1-4 is the second opus in an ongoing series of meditations on form and memory. The Études' deliberately minimal approach alludes to an abstract narrative of loss and revival. The themes in succession: Cocoon, Bloom, Flight, High Tide. Formal variation, restrained palettes, and austere compositions invite the viewer into intricately textured worlds that echo beyond the surface of the image.
Drawing informs the character of this series of Études. The dimensional form and composition of each piece is inspired by textures and elements within an original series of improvisational graphite drawings, preserving a sense of immediacy in the final pieces."
