Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
My work is drawing based. My process is one of building up tones and textures using a method of charcoal, carbon and graphite combined, all of which yield a wonderful range of blacks and grays that vary in density and transparency as much as in tonality. As a native of Ireland, the landscape there has certainly shaped and influenced my work. Many of my drawings are of places that have a deep personal association for me; an endeavour perhaps to stay connected to my roots. The work is not just about particular places however, but an attempt to find meaning in my response to the natural world, a way of looking beyond and beneath what I see. As the climate continues to change, there is added poignancy in the gloaming. I look for it now more than ever.
