Notations

Drawing is an activity that attempts to reconstruct past experiences that rest within the subconscious and memory. My drawings function like mental maps that trace thought, emotion, and time; giving material presence to mental imagery. Drawing is a thought process and a way of articulating ideas. Like mental maps, I use the act and process of drawing to think through my larger photography wall works, sculpture, and ideas. Rather than focusing on producing polished commodifiable objects, my drawings are products of the mental exercises of remembering. Using photographs, hand written texts and relying on memory, subtle washes of colour and loose gestural marks accompany text and annotations in an attempt to unravel the complexities of thought and the mind. The resulting work rests somewhere between imagination and blue prints of the mind to explore the subjective and malleable nature of internalized thought and memory.
