Detail of The Delicate Remains


I am interested in memory and in capturing a sense of place. I do this through drawing from memory, photographs and found objects. I draw and redraw the scene or subject so that it becomes detached from the original and more personal in response. I work with space and simplified images to give a heightened dreamlike quality. For years I have worked with just a white surface as this gave a sense of nothingness and quietness. More recently I have introduced a muted colour scheme with the aim to enhance the sense of space and narrative. Quite large areas of the canvas are left empty of line and detail, this is to enhance the drawn areas and to flatten out the space to create an uncanny prospective and naivety.
