'luv u' is about many different kinds of obsession, but it is equally about a search for other approaches to drawing. I could have used sand (for example), but in the spirit of obsession I elected to make the dust myself by grinding down granite with a drill and a masonry bit. The work represents an abstract series of metaphors, and one in which I also sought to consider the process of drawing. For example, whenever the piece is displayed, first the dust must be placed precisely, then the bones, to a plan. Thus the repeated ritual emphasises the obsession, and also the drawing is partially re-made.
