“The exhibition title – Arrivals – is mainly in reference to the small drawings in this exhibition that just seemed to arrive into my studio. What may appear to be a somewhat whimsical sub heading for this exhibition is there to stress that my conscious mind is far less creative than my subconscious. The former repeats itself and the latter is able to make unforeseen connections and create new forms that possess a real presence. A ‘voice’ is given to the drawing or painting materials allowing their fundamental behavioural traits a chance to perform. Indeterminacy is a key factor, mutations are created in reference to the evolutionary process itself and serendipitous occurrences emerge.”
