drawings

During a three-month residency at Gasworks, London, UK (1999), I created over a hundred drawings that related to one another without an implied narrative. In these drawings things were presented in code and worked like a type of Rorschach inkblot test. The viewer as a result created the meaning of the visual tableaux. These drawing are about the inevitability of change pitted against our desire for permanence. We create personas and identities to give form to this desire, but they are constantly coming unhinged. This is approached with humor, playfulness and sympathy. Intended as a testament not only to our vulnerability, but also to our inherent dynamism.
