“The entire process of memory at first eludes consciousness.” (Freud) The space between the real truth and the imagination is vast. I seek to penetrate this liminal space through drawing, transferring what is immaterial in to a physical vessel in which I can explore my own recollection and imagination. Drawing enables me to bridge the gaps between what is real and imagined; physical and intangible. The paper beneath a drawing is a lightweight membrane whose own materiality is usually ignored or overlooked. It enables the drawing to be supported without distraction of its physicality; it’s thinness and linearity allowing for the lines to come to life and hold permeance in the world. Through drawing I seek to question and probe the mystery of recollection, and to explore the unbounded potential for the intangible to emerge.
