“Much of my work is a form of journal, a stream of consciousness in my daily practice of art making. Images range from abstract to more recognizable simplified subjects that relate to the world around and within me. The small drawings and paintings are not studies for larger pieces—each one is a finished piece on its own. The intuitive response between the formal qualities of visual art and my thoughts and emotions give a narrative quality to the work, no matter how abstract. The installation is made up of three parts. The main exhibition space includes small artworks on individual pieces of paper made from a variety of materials (ink, coloured pencils, watercolour, collage, pastel, acrylic paint). The images are in groupings aligned to create impromtu connections for the viewer. Each painting and drawing is a spontaneous moment in time—each grouping represents a period of time. The work in the display cabinets includes various sketch books and loose drawings and paintings piled in boxes. They reveal my compulsion to create images as a dialogue between me and the medium. The third part, Improvisations in Line and Shape, is an animated movie made from small pen and ink drawings produced over the past year. The movie allows the viewer to observe the change and repetition of composition and subject matter over a period of time.”
