Biography

Statement

The pleasure of drawing, flashes of enlightenments and half forgotten memories find a meeting point in these images often organised in series. Viewers are invited to envisage their own path through this elusive network of symbolic images.

They spontaneously surface from my subconscious but they are also carefully planned in their execution. Each piece emerges from a continuous process of layering, erasure and reprocessing.

The aim has been to evoke something atmospheric and symbolic in nature. Just as life is a continuous process of enquiry and revelation, each individual piece attempts to transmit this into a corporeal form.

Colours and marks are often bleached off to represent a void where microcosms turn into macrocosms and vice versa. To create this network of miniatures and images , I employ a variety of approaches including paper laminating, alternative photographic processes, wax treatment alongside acrylics, oils and watercolor.
