Artist Statement
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, fear and isolation, are central concerns, it is their exploration through the specific languages of painting and drawing that informs the meaning. In this body of work, I have focused on recording and mapping social interaction. Through mark-making, I engage with these humanistic themes as intimate / public dialogues are played out on the paper in an attempt to challenge the validity of language in articulating these aspects of human experience.
