"Fearless"
My "fearless" version of "Fear Of No Lines" is born out of a blob of ink from which the word "fear" is written in mirror writing.

In between
Having fun interrupting my practice to recreate a new piece out of torn fragments. What is happening -or not- between each section is left for the viewer to imagine.

Weave in
Interruption of the creative process by using an unfamiliar material and genre for me. By tearing and weaving the fragments, a new piece emerged. I compare the weaving to all the artistic processes which unconsciously influence my own.

"Les years"
I connected straight away with the growth rings of the tree. My superimposed written spirals symbolise layers of time.

Porte
My love of Spanish immediately connected me with the title of Alvaro's piece. The word conjured images of a symbolic door imprisoning language. Its distressed surface, which acts like a palimpsest, bears the physical marks of the passage of time.

Spiralling
Lindsay's artwork resonated in me as an allusion to the unfathomable passing of time. My screen printed work strives to capture the essence of the written word while leaving traces behind. I pushed the screen printed technique further by forcing the dried paint through the mesh allowing only...

Lost
"Lost" is a celebration of dance through movement. Movement is conveyed through the curviness of lines, the cursive handwriting and the ethereal grace of the Maruishi paper. The paper, which has become a map, bears witness of the silk road by leaving marks and traces of words...

Runway
The piece is inspired from an image of surviving fragment of runway from Martlesham Heath airfield. I was struck by the square geometry of the weathered ground which became the design of my work. Each square enhances the visual beauty of key words such as: Martlesham, heath, airfield, heroes,...

Contrails
Seeing and hearing planes that just took off from Norwich airport inspired this work. The buzzing atmosphere and conversations at the terminal are conveyed through the layering of greetings in French, Spanish and English; my three "identities". However, as Christy Moore said: “For...
