My work concentrates on the relationships between objects and the space they occupy. The rudimentary interiors are populated by only a few everyday objects. The recurring motif of the latest series of prints is a light bulb and chair. The simplified content allows for a greater manipulation of the design elements of the still lives.
The prints are created in series using combinations of intaglio and relief printing techniques. Occasionally I will use some colour in the form of a background roll over or monoprint. Each print uses variations in the inking process, and modifications to the depiction of scale to encourage different narratives to be interpreted from the same key elements in the image.
I use abstract and symbolic elements to give viewers a chance to think and analyse these prints on their own because everyone has a different interpretation.
The elements in the space fill it with the stillness of their mood. Taken alone they are symbols of this supposed system of living.
