Artist Statement

My work is concerned with using different drawing technologies to record and mark time.

My drawings are intended to act as records of the gradual deterioration of original artworks and cultural artefacts. They are produced to remind us that a piece invested with the time of its own making is also falling apart in slow motion once it is made. They attempt to visualize the action of time on things popularly presumed to be preserved in a state of something approaching permanence.
