These drawings use drawn line, bold colour and emotive text to explore intense personal experiences that happened following the breakdown of a long term relationship. Each piece traps the essence of an emotional and often traumatic event on this journey.

The drawings offer obscured revelations. Phrases repeat like a mantra but are voiced so many times they eventually become meaningless and lose their power. They writhe across the page trapped in organic forms that are in never-ending motion, built up like layers of sediment. Bursts of colour are anchored in darkness. The results may be fixed – trapped on the page – but they also have an impermanence that means they will fade with time.

A2 and A4 original drawings on cotton rag paper using a combination of Staedtler Permanent Lumocolor, Sharpie Permanent Markers and Pen-touch silver / argent plata.

Except for the first image, these are detailed shots. See the work in its full glory at the Pie Factory, Margate, 17th to 21st November 2017. Private view Saturday 18th. Facebook...
