Leaves, 2015


On the walk to my studio one morning I was struck by the balancing act of four leaves on a tree in Park Léopold. I took a hundred photographs, then drew the dancing shapes before taking my calligraphy brush and repeating the forms endlessly. After a week and dozens of papers and ink bottles I knew four shapes by heart. I have since used them as an abstract vocabulary to describe movements and interactions between bodies.
