MANNEQUIN  │  Chalk, charcoal and pastel on collage

In retrospect this ad-hoc still life is anything but. The female breast, symbol of motherhood, is exposed and yet the maternal visage is hidden. The torso is hollow; its key-opening revealed at right shoulder, in turn echoing the accidentally-truncated forms of ancient statuary.

VIEW OF A FOLDED DRAWING  │  Pastel and watercolour on paper

A composite of drawn textures in pastel worked in layers with washes of water-colour. Sections are taped together to effect a folded image; one of a series of folded paper pieces. Each crease becomes a boundary or crossing through which a repeated form inverts, as the whole affects a flow of colour suggesting movement and growth. I’ve often drawn inspiration from Rebecca Saunders’ trio The Under-side of Green for clarinet, violin and piano.
