My practice explores qualities of line, texture and form. I create work that considers movements of marks, weight and transparency of materials. I question myself more than I question a viewer – why do I have this need to ‘fill in a page’ when drawing, or prove I can handle the medium in a controlled manner? The rhythmic shapes and lines form an image illustrating a sense of duration. The timeless detailed drawing and layered printmaking techniques allow the image to ‘float’ from one meaning into another while the work is still in progress.

Since 2020 I had been working on series of artworks based on images and text found in Petrus Apianus’ ‘Astronomicum Caesareum’ (1540) and Johannes Kepler’s ‘Harmonices Mundi’ (1619) books held in The Crawford Collection at The Royal Observatory, Edinburgh. I analysed hand cut volvelles (Apian wheels) displayed in the hexagonal woodcut printed frames in Astronomicum Caesareum, and investigated Kepler’s idea of how music and rhythm can be compared to the movement of planets. Both research subjects were related by their importance to the development of astronomy, questioning human’s changing understanding of Earth’s shape and what rhythm, speed it moved. I was using these primary sources to make work that does not describe what is already described in the books, but aimed to create new meanings about the gravity, rhythm, emptiness of space, and found new relationships between two themes by applying mark making techniques.
