Isolation and Restraint

I’m very intrigued by the experience of making art with extreme restraints – and in seeing the outcomes. It is like delving into the unknown. I anticipate that I will make a interesting body of work as I will be able to work without any distractions.

A lot of my work is directly related to the world that surrounds me at the time of creating it – reflections of common ground, build environments and visually inputted images.  Working in isolation, I will be tapping into my knowledge and memories as a source of inspiration rather than drawing inspiration from what is around me.

Within these restraints, my primary focus for investigation will be sourcing imagery directly from my subconscious.  I’m really looking forward to the outcomes
