'The surface is very rich – a product of the energy that went into the work…it is something more sensed than seen, what Francis Bacon, quoting Valery, called "The grin without the cat…the sensation without the boredom of its conveyance."

Through the modality of studio practice, the series is an open ended or unfinished form of infolding process with echoes of previous activity and events in an encapsulation of marks and paint patinas on walls and floors. The drawings' physical parameters are kept open where residual materials become a continuum of architectural 'weathering', what is absent is as important as what is present. Works on paper are enquiries into the phenomena of movement and trajectory of natural light and shadow realised through a methodology that is both reflexive and open to change. A theme of Classicism in Nature is explored in the text of the smaller series 'Leda' and 'Zeus' whilst the large drawings explore scale and temporality.
