My recent work is preoccupied with our everyday interaction with constructed space.
Derived from references to the concrete formal elements of architecture, my drawing
installations highlight viewer awareness of built environments, evoking memories of
particular places and events experienced therein.
However, my working process - which involves making and unmaking, collaging and
reconstructing sections of the composition - disrupts the representational elements
of the drawing and discourages any easy reading of the space they describe, creating
curious interruptions, sudden disjunctions and complex spatial wanderings, which are
intended to challenge the viewer by evoking a sense of spatial illusion and - occasionally
The contrasting readings of space thus created and the increasingly large scale of the
installations have become central features of my practice. Additionally, the drawings
have begun to traverse the traditonal architectural boundaries of ceiling, wall and floor
surface and to encroach into the space occupied by the viewer.
