art works: the continuous thread

This series of pieces visualises some of my favourite quotes. I commonly find myself using words and phrases to stimulate the development of work. Writers and artists leave behind words which resonate with my feelings.


Many works are composed of evocative forms and figures incorporated into surfaces articulated with complex, undulating, knotted and interwoven designs and text. Patterns emerge slowly as the work is viewed through gentle, yet obsessive, mazes exploiting the boundaries of the surfaces and creating subtle combinations often through dense, repeating and interlocking pattern based designs.
Patterns and figures in the works are derived from personal markings such as fingerprints and body markings along with the working of a mostly unconscious human ancestral memory and through to the pixelization of an image creating a mosaic of forms and patterns which appear to move and change swaying in the tides of unseen forces.
