Artist Statement

I am interested in creating images, which dislocate the viewer from any sense of real known space, from our normal associations of perspective, scale and sense of material weight.

Images, which disorientate the eye through unrecognisable and ambiguous visual spaces, both photographically printed and hand drawn.

In the Das Festsetzen works what at first appears to be simple representation of photographic landscape vistas within these works, reveals its self to be the construction of an image through digital processes of image manipulation and hand drawing. The image manifests itself twofold; firstly as a photographic print, and subsequently this print is then physically drawn onto with graphite.

All of the photographic images are subjected to digital manipulation to transpose them from visible places, to the edges of visual recognition. To make them “irreparably distant and hopelessly removed from anything that can be understood or experienced”.

The overlaid drawing creates a perceived twofoldedness, a disorientation where one image is harder to be read against the other as they converge on the picture plane. This dislocation is further amplified as the drawn image and the mechanical inkjet surface create an uncanny dialogue, a spatial ambiguity where the picture surface hovers somewhere between each image layer, echoing a state of perpetual transition and impermanence.
