In this collection of drawings, I use abstracted marks and simple forms referencing the landscapes of my surroundings. My work embraces my relationship with the stimulating terrain of places I’ve visited.
These drawings are my visual reactions and interpretations of natural patterns that I have observed. These markings mimics the invisible sounds and movements perceived in daily life and obvious textures and patterns noted in nature.
By eliminating a strong colour palette present in my past work, and by using primarily drawing techniques, focus is given to the monochrome markings. The drawings, made up of overlapping tonal fields, clusters of organic patter, soft swooping lines, and bold points of interest, together create a map to a fantastical experience.
The “History of Here” refers to the story of one single space. It’s the idea that each mundane everyday location, such as a park bench, as the possibility of having an infinite past. When you begin to consider every tiny movement and action, you begin to imagine how dense and complicated each place may be.
