About my drawing practise

Why do I draw? 
To immerse myself in another world. To connect with something beyond which is bigger than self. To see differently and to see beyond the expected, to allow the unexpected to emerge. 

The physical process of drawing is integral to my work, I work from live subject matter. I work intuitively. Surface becomes integral to the work. 

There is an intellectual process in the making of the work and also in the appreciation of it.

Stepping up to the line, finding the curve.

Perception of edges, contrast, relationships, space and the whole. 

Drawing becomes part of you like a boot; strong, moulded to your own shape, full of story and layers of history. It captures more than a moment more like a lifetime of mark, stroke, scratch, rub and surface.  A tentative line can gently meander only to be juxtaposed with solidity.
