Standing on a Curve
This series takes its title from a line in Albert Camus's Myth of Sisyphus. Time, in one sense, is a co-ordinate, a point on a curve, a moment in the continuous now on the arc of a life-time. In these layered works geological shadows are repeatedly reworked with earth pigments, stains, graphite, charcoal and gesso. Laid down, traced, blotted, refigured, scrubbed, bleached out, scratched through, drawn upon burnt out. Images emerge through invisible histories.
