"My drawings for this exhibition are about the restless nature of the artist studio. I’ve described a selection of physical items within my own space such as paint tubes and bottles that I typically use, move, and replace often throughout the artistic process. The items presented in these works aren’t ‘set up’ for the purpose of this project, instead I have made multiple drawings of different objects where they have landed the night before, after a long day of contemplation and physical work. This constant movement of objects speaking also of the emotional state of the artist while working within the space."
