Drawing, process, moving image & human form are the apparatus through which my relations with the natural world are materialised. Biological operations, geological formations, cosmological occurrences, such things are observed & explored as metaphors to articulate an inner world, intimate & private. I consider these mediating practices as transitional states & where my concerns with being, time, fusion & energy inhabit & become tangible.

Drawing is a consistent form, a type of behaviour & through daily practice a devotional act. The line is a recurring motif. Threadlike and often tenuous, it serves as a channel connecting me to natural forces that the act of drawing intends to invoke, a way of feeling a form into being.
