'Devolution K' consists of paintings and sculptural forms based on the experimental use of automatic drawing, found objects and decalcomania. The deliberate accidents and aleatory forms create the space to explore and illustrate the connection between past and future, microcosm and macrocosm, dark and light. Figures in psychedelic dreamscapes, spiritual entities and complex structures are situated in the blurred landscape of evolution creating a visual approach of fauna and flora within a conceptual time and space.
