Watercolour

I use watercolour to draw and to think. A material that bleeds, watercolour enables me to critically play with evocative and effusive concepts. I embrace the irregularity in the way the pigment and water move around the paper, encouraging me to abandon control of the creative process and become comfortable with uncertainty. Drawing is thinking in action as ideas mutate, evolve and merge in playful, unpredictable ways. Watercolour enables me to make sense of the material world I explore (populated by bodies and machines) and to play with the uncanny, as I draw leaky bodies, machine mutations, bodies as objects and objects as strange. Watercolour concepts exist in unfinished, open ended suspension, moving between the known and the unknown, inviting other possibilities.
