Drawing & Research

The interests which drive my practice, my research, and my practice-as-research have to do with a curiosity around understanding the sensibilities invoked through drawing. While my own practice discloses as portrayal of some representational view on its surface, what I seek is a revelation of interior perspective: the fleeting glimpse of less visible aspects of existence, a hunt for a hint of the unconscious, an acknowledgement of broader areas of possibility within the perceptual field.  It is my position that a work of art offers an excursion into another kind of landscape – not unlike a good night’s sleep, or our dreaming life, or a few hours of reverie in the dark of a cinema. Thus, we encounter an imaginative world projected outside of ourselves – and – by doing so can discover what the world looks like to us.
