Chanced





This animation comprises of monotypes ,drawn frames and layered with film.

I am experimenting with contrasting styles of narration.One which facilitates a chain of conciousness ,with the process leading and making the story,the other a backbone of concrete narrative that the viewer can follow.

In reality the two interwine and end up reflecting and supporting each other.

The viewer is prompted now and again with moments of clarity that seem out of reach. Aware that each strand of narrative is effectively striving to say the same things on different levels and by different means.

Animation

Inward.This was projected onto Japanese paper which made it more tactile than a screen or a smooth wall.Im experimenting with fragmented narrative and playing around with other methods than a linear way of story telling.This was my first attempt at stop motion but there will be more Im sure.

Animation

This is some amateur footage of my 2nd year piece just to show the effect of the paper.I took this on my phone so its very shaky.

Etchings































These etchings were taken from my large drawing,recolleged and selectively inked up in an experimentation with layout and form.The latter prints are aquatinted which really pushed the plates to the limit with the depths of the lines and textures.
The last etching is a character taken from my large drawing which i found really striking and wanted to hone down and expand the narrative in a small piece.





Year 2


This drawing was done slowly over the summer,little by little and over this period different moods and memories were absorbed into the piece over the days and weeks.I was playing with the idea of being confined to our own perception represented by the bubble and my place within the world.I conveyed metaphors such the ship made of ship wrecks and the sun and the moon in a type of tribal language while synthesizing areas of sustainment in other places.I fused anatomy drawing,photo transfers and washes to show a very unscientific diagram of my body.

Exhibition Piece 1







This was one of two pieces in the show. With this drawing I started in the middle with the earliest memories I could conjure, then worked my way up towards the present.
The top triangle which represented the then and now.

The concentrated abstract forms of the bottom triangle conveying the unknown future.

Memories, key events and themes of feelings mean its bursting with imagery.... many said it was like 'Where’s Wally' and in many ways it is. People picked out objects and stared intently searching for something and this searching was an exploring of my life.


It’s a visual autobiography











Exhibition Piece 2

This multi-paneled etching is literally a mind map. Shapes and scenarios’ derived from memories- with a flying machine rising above and looking down. I wanted to put forward the idea of separating yourself from your own point of view and look at your psychology with the clarity of a map.
The memories and events are abstracted so absolute certainty of what is actually going on remains out of reach- but real enough for the viewer to get an impression.
With many often seeing and connecting the forms to perceive something beyond my intention, which perhaps reflects something within themselves.
