Artist Statement

As a printmaker I am interested in process. I make pictures from figures found in newspapers and magazines. I process the figures, editing, simplifying, re-drawing and transferring them to new environments, landscapes, urban spaces or interiors. I like the way this process can change the nature of things translating one perception into another. I find it interesting the way we can attach an emotional narrative to the figure depending on its existence within a space. The notion of a narrative connected to the image is appealing as each picture tells a story, but what is the story? How does it end? The possibilities are endless and dependent on the viewer. The medium of print is particularly relevant to the images. Images are derived through process, drawn, traced and stencilled. Then translated and resolved through a print process, screen print, mono print, etching. The quality of line, flatness of shape, is difficult to replicate in any other media. Possibilities of repetition and reorganising the same figure within a variety of situations made easier by the nature and process of printmaking.
