ABOUT

Statement

 I draw, mould and carve to interpret delicate and hidden material; material that is disappearing or already gone, a moment that is fleeting or has slipped by. This offers a path to preserve and to make solid, to protect and to hold onto. This is a mode of analysis, a way to expose the gap between the real and imagined. The work can be viewed in a continual present, within its own illusionary context; both a time traveller and a fragile moment preserved in time enabled by the physical act of mark making. Through these investigations I am able to explore historic materials; the very craft of painting and drawing. I am able to quantify and determine though space and quiet, touching delicately on the materiality of the trace, the immediacy of the recording and the visibility of the image and in turn discovering light, weight and space.
