New monoprints investigate layered space through colour relationships and gestural marks that result in representations of stilled- action or vitality. They suggest the possibility of colour being a language in itself, a correlative for emotions: pointing to meanings without illustrating them. I’m currently working between printmaking and larger works on canvas. Drawing on the rural environment around my studio in the Lake District, 3 recent artist residencies in India, Greek and Hindu mythologies and memories of my childhood in Borneo, they bring together diverse experiences from past, present and imagined futures through the process of making.
