My drawings affirm a desire to understand more about human relationships, specifically my own interaction with others. They are equally about forming a balance between formal concerns and the creation of emotional resonance. While issues, thoughts and feelings, which often evoke memory, personal history, fears and anxieties, are central concerns, it is their exploration through the specific language of drawing that informs the meaning. Through mark-making, I record and map social interaction as intimate / public dialogues are played out on the paper or canvas in an attempt to challenge the validity of language in articulating aspects of human experience. read full statement
