I am interested in how the nature of drawing enables me to capture ephemeral moments where light meets surface, where space meets body. Drawing allows me to directly transform the ephemeral into a physical embodied state of being. During the processes of drawing I feel connected to a liminal state and can explore the balance between the dualities that the drawings contain; presence and absence, shadow and light, fragility and strength, and the space between physical material and immateriality.
These drawings are half real, half imagined images that reveal the process of my own looking and traces of my own gaze as light and space change over time. They function as a way of understanding drawing as a verb, creating works that embody physical moments of exploration between materials and my own body. The marks contained within these drawings are important because I have made them, with glimpses of my own presence captured unconsciously through the process of their creation.
