These works draw from interests ranging from the organic structure of the human body on a cellular level to the graphic language of scientific structures and systems as well as a growing fascination with the ephemeral aspects of memory and perception. This recent investigation has led to the creation of a series of cut steel silhouettes with highly pigmented reverse sides that serve to reflect coloured light onto the adjacent wall bathing the work in a subtle glow or aura which hints at a latent energy or life force. The afterimage effect of this impression underscores a new desire to explore the sensual rather than empirical aspects of our surroundings – something experienced as opposed to something observed. The imagery employed, ranging from the microscopic (vascular systems) to the cataclysmic (atmospheric electricity) are related in both form and function as complex and active pathways or conduits.
