My images are concerned with places and things that seem animated by a lurking consciousness. This may merely be sensed in the atmosphere, or manifest explicitly via written messages or apparitions, implying that the membrane between two worlds has worn thin, and something is bleeding through. As though perceived through clairvoyance, mundane spaces take on a heightened reality, or a hallucinatory unreality. Through drawing, I immerse myself in this vision. The paper becomes like the screen of the mind’s eye, in monochrome, as many of us dream. This may be a memory intruding upon the present, the future leaving messages for the past, or something rising from the subconscious. These moments of clarity reveal unease just below the surface, our own internal warnings and insights.
