Many opportunities exist for looking and being looked at. My work is a means to reveal experiences of the people and relationships that surround me and the internal monologue I construct to recount and adsorb them.
I collect information and create my own archive using a series of data gathering exercises which are inspired by Mass Observation. I am guided by this material to create new scenes out of collected memories, some my own and some borrowed, using the intimate mediums of drawing and printmaking to play with image making that moves between the real and the imagined.
The labour-intensive process of lithography allows me time to focus on recording these transient memories and private moments.
“How wonderful, how very wonderful the operations of time and the changes of the human mind.”
