    Artist Statement

    My practice engages with the constant development within the urban environment. I am fascinated by the way vast architectural projects are changing the nature and demography of given areas. I seek to explore the relationship between these built environments and those who inhabit them, sometimes figures are of central importance or of implied presence. I like to use their movement as a metaphor for energy within the city and passage of time. The resulting drawings are very large in size, allowing us to enter the drawing as a physical presence, becoming involved. These works take many months, changing and developing, content evolving and suprising conclusions being made. The monoprints are quickly executed, drawing on the relationship we have to speed and change within the urban environment.Through these pieces I want to generate that sense of energy and excitement which is representative of being part of the city.
