|Notes:||The artist uses brushes and palette knives and squeegees to draw the paint over the canvas and previous layers of paint to create the effects of the blurring and reflections experienced in urban crowds. This also creates a certain ambiguity in places where the background becomes a positive space and the figures a negative one.|
Random urban crowds and the movements of pedestrians within it, carving their trajectories through the city spaces. The varying paces and moods of individuals as distinct entities are at times juxtaposed with and at times dissolved by those of the multitude.
