Artist Statement

 

 

 

 

Artist Statement:

In this suite of large-scale drawings I’ve raised questions regarding the metaphorical and mythical potential of the domestic flock and the relationship between these animals and their keepers.

Are these sheep coming or going? What is about to happen; what has happened? Where and when did this or will this take place? The perceived illusion of space and time in these drawings must remain negotiable and psychologically ambiguous. I want to see what will happen formally and what sensation can occur within a heightened paradoxical space of description (fact) and invention (fiction).
