For me, drawing is visual thinking, providing a link between the thought, the action and its ability to expose the essence of the innermost life of things. Each thought is exposed to the world as a medium on a surface, releasing a new sensibility often experienced for the first time.
Most of my drawings are fragments of first concepts, which at times are successful enough to remain in that state. At other times the fragments demand more information, more material, more investigation - they are desperately attempting to discard the shackles of academia.
I find these current drawings infinitely more satisfying because they are not trying to be anything other than simply honest marks which relate to the past, present and future.
