The character of my graphite drawings is that of the apparition, the fever-dream, and the psychedelic leached of colour. Originally inspired by the fever dreams and halucinations suffered as a child, later drawings then became an outlet through which to explore artistic and philospohical questions. The use of graphite in powder and pencil form creates swirls and eddies in that void, seen as both light and dark it represents the concept of Eigengrau or ‘Brain Grey’. I use my hands, fingers, pencils and brushes: whatever I can find to achieve this in a cerebral, yet visceral manner.

To be updated soon.
