The territory I engage with is that ambiguous space which lies between abstraction and figuration: a place where the viewer is invited to form their own conclusions and interpretations, using improvisation and a spontaneous approach I explore the possibilities which lie before me: this involves the pushing and pulling of the physical and metaphorical elements into tensions and harmonies which will lead to a conclusion. Itranslate my experience of being alive in the environment, a process which involves taking mental and physical notes which feels as much unconscious as it is conscious.Contemplative observation of the developing images is as important as the physical application of media.A working process which involves daily practice and engagement, the physicality of application, scraping back, erasing and forming is at once reductive and additive in nature.
