Artist Statement

These drawings have evolved from a series of experiments concerned with realising " Everything" in the known universe. The absurdity of the idea is at once daunting yet equally intoxicating and addictive!The Iconic from the ephemeral!!!! The drawings are made utilising various stylistic modes of imaging.............I change my interest and so does the work!....I suppose they are a reverie...a musing on what it is to see, think and respond............A reflective observation...they can take weeks or hours to reach a state of "Sleep".....I feel they are never truly finished.....i like the idea of being able to return and change things!....You never stop learning and adding to the experience of life......So i feel my work has to reflect that state of flux.....I will probably add to this statement as well !!!!

Man is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness from which he emerges and the infinity in which he is engulfed.

Blaise Pascal
