To make Art is to delve into a conversation with the unknown. My artworks engage in a process that combines pursuit, reflection, adjustment, and an embodied physically. Their making is guided by a search for that which is cognitively unknowable yet can be felt viscerally.
These works are as much about what is depicted, as they are about how the image is coaxed into being.
The work that I present in this exhibition, "Problem Solved" is a culmination of work created within the past five years, with the most recent prints, "Peat" and "Peat Puzzle" being produced after an extended stay in the West of Ireland. They set a tone that is quiet, dark, and remote, yet also intimate. All the prints make visible a dialogue between self, and spirit. They are evidence of my mediation on the world I find myself living within.
