Sketching an experience of place


Movement and its limitation within an environment is a visual-spatial presentation which responds to the vibrancy of partaking in an assemblage, and to the ambivalence of living in a borderland. The sketching process employed in the making of the artworks occurs through an interface between painting, sculpting and printing. It entails a movement between the painterly and the linear, and of opacities and translucencies. The sketches dwell on a sense of place, and an experience of place: they are speculative; they are arrangements of possible encounters; they are expressions of the uncertainties entailed in a human relationship to place.
