For me, a kind of mythic consciousness is present in my imagery and poetic expression and can lead to a greater awareness of the psyche, the inner world, the unconscious.
The titles of my drawings are created via a ‘random choice of letters process’ of my design, to create ‘pseudo-word combinations’, so as not to influence the viewer’s first impression/ interpretation with a logical word title.
A few artists who have inspired/ influenced me in my work include, Marcel Duchamp, John Cage, Edgar Varese, Jackson Pollack, Anselm Kiefer, Mozart, Gerhard Richter. Claire Denis, and Jean-Luc Godard.
'atsif.ruto' is ready to frame; a light matte finish (fixed protective varnish) has been applied to the surface; it is signed, titled and dated on back side (unless noted otherwise).
