“If the world were clear, art would not exist” – Albert Camus – The Myth of Sisyphus

This quote by Camus describes a key inspiration for the work, presenting the emergence and dissolution of forms and settings. Employing a process of creation and erasure, concealing and revealing, evoking the sense of a netherworld conflating time, place, vision and memory. Exploring the tension between figuration and abstraction, inviting the viewer to question their perception of time, place and space.
