I am an artist working in multimedia technology while rooting it in the conventional practice of drawing. My work derives from investigations into the grey area between drawing and writing. The physical action of both practices has been a source of compelling curiosity for me. The relationship of the spoken and written word has led me to explore the connection between the drawn mark and the sound produced while inscribing.
The execution rate of these drawings is exceptionally slow. Visually and conceptually they are connected to and assimilate with geological time and sound waves. My working method is inverted: rather than responding to a sound that yields a pictorial result, I am responding to a visual (line) that yields a spectrographic result. I also see these works as internal expressions. The slow and obsessive nature of the process literally places me within the work at a microscopic (microphonic) vantage point.
