Our extremes of natural disasters and technological dependance to recording it pose questions of experience . How does that relate to the intimate activity of drawing and painting.
My work is about drawing and the technological gap between witness and event. I am interested in cities and nature, permenance and loss and spaces where infinite chaos and order meet.
How we engage with our environment is a reflection of the fragility and disintergration of these spaces. And how we engage with the world. I am interested in using technology but maintaining the relationship of the hand and eye within it. Since 2011 I have worked with sites of ruin (culminating in a solo show at the Embassy Tea Gallery in Oct 2013) I work across Drawing, print, painting and film to explore individually elements that are thrown up by the images and events that I witness through the internet. In a sense I am interested in 'invisible' ruins that are cleared.
