accretion : noun the process of new layers or matter being slowly added to something" from Latin accretio(n-), from accrescere 'become larger', from ad- 'to' + crescere 'grow'. Oxford English Dictionary
Spatial accretions is a series materializing memories of places. Each drawing focuses on a location – whether it’s a room, a neighborhood or a whole city. It captures the spirit of the place rather than the place itself. It brings to light what remained salient in my memory. Through this reverie, the drawings aren’t rendered as exhaustively as they would be for an architectural project, but instead are recreated in a multiplicity of spatial sequences, each representing a unique point of view.
The spatial sequences of the place and their topology are reduced to fragments that are then reassembled. Not juxtaposed, but carefully intertwined. The drawing captures a single place at a specific moment in time, from the perspective of an omniscient observer. The interweaving of different perspectives imbues each drawing with a multidimensional persona. The resulting feeling is that the place itself has evolved into something totally new; one that lives only in my memory.
