I prefer mark-making to image-making. Defining and interrogating space whether on a page, between the layers in a piece of plywood or the corner of a room is integral to my physical and thought processes in making art.
The language of form is the physicality of sharing the same space as art. It is a bodily relationship that prompts me to position my work and art within the context of of other creative objects and fields: furniture, architecture and tools.
The vocabulary of visual art can create a poignancy and humour that is separate from the translation to language that intellectually understanding art necessitates. A rigorous investigation of the interaction of line, shape, color and depth allows me to create a visual syntax for ideas around the positioning of art in culture, in rooms, in my studio and in my imagination.
