The thematic focus of my work is on the still-life genre. The chance qualities offered by the printmaking medium are crucial to the outcome of my work. The medium’s ability to record time with scratches, foul bites and other marks which reveal the life of the plate throughout the making of the work, are some examples of these. The subject matter is taken from the everyday with a strong influence on nature and how something seemingly known can be quite mysterious on closer observation. The fragile nature of living things and metaphysical concerns are also subjects explored within the work.
