“When I make artwork it not only represents my journey to make the finished piece but also includes, and plays with, the recognition of its observation by others. I am aware of myself having ideas and making things, and I’m also aware of the space between this process and the observer (the context of which is also considered). I do not expect the observer to ‘get it’ as I do not feel I’m actually injecting precise information that can be read like a book given enough intelligence. This imagined space is what I find to be the ultimate end/beginning point of a piece of art. It’s the point where I’m not involved in the rigors of thinking and doing. I have a chance to see the work again as an observer and to also learn from others in the process of repeatedly attempting to express the indefinable.”
