Central to all my work is the conflict between chance and influence, order and chaos, success and failure, rules and irregularity. My practice has a very specific focus on drawing, which is largely due to its immediacy and flexibility as a medium for the exploration of ideas.
A key strand of my work involves the employment of systems or devices to disrupt or interfere with my control over the process of making. Through my practice I aim to explore the notions of chance, order, control and serendipity.
