Drawing is an interrogation, a way of concentrating, or meditating, of allowing thoughts to rise slowly. It can be an attempt to understand not only physical structure but also something of the psychological structure and one’s own responses to the subject.

These images are examples of monoprints, from two different series of prints, one of onsite sketches done during a journey in the Far East, part of a virtual residency with HATCH, the other from old photographs of the Bristol Mental Hospital, at Glenside Hospital Museum, where I have spent time as artist in residence. Both are responses to human inhabited places and spaces.
