Masters | 2005

How do we as artists manage ourselves in relation to the destabilizing nature of creativity? I have found that where I clutch onto certainty and control, my work is usually stilted and predictable. But where I venture into uncertainty and hold the paradox of simultaneously knowing and not knowing what I am doing, the artistic process can be wonderfully fruitful. This abandonment usually allows for wilder and more innovative work.

In this series of images, I combined drawing from observation, memory and imagination. What this meant for me was to synthesise drawing skill with what felt like a more academically outlawed intuitive mode of working. The human form remains significant. Similar to the earlier Swimmers Series, the figure is rendered as abstract, often physically moving and spatially ambiguous.
