Raisin D’Etre (Investigations into Perception) is my most recent body of work. This, like my practice, centres around drawing in the expanded field to explore & respond to meaningful philosophical concerns. I feel we can move towards understanding ‘knowledge’ and challenge the concept through the act of drawing. I make drawings (of both the traditional and contemporary kind) using a wide array of conventional and experimental media, processes and techniques in an attempt to navigate complex ideas and thoughts. I systematically dissect and separate elements of perception by capturing, interrogating and translating my thoughts and experiences by drawing in the expanded field. Influenced by philosophy and psychology, I fragment, distort and layer observational drawings of raisins to bring attention to the multifarious and subjective nature of reality and the the inner worlds we inhibit. The rhizomatic nature of knowledge and perception informs the development of my work – the intellectual, sensual and material sits in relation to the concepts, subjects, media, contexts and surfaces explored within my participatory practice.
