These drawings intend to elude the narratives of the figure and engage a dialogue with the abstract, the cosmic and the microcosmic. Using biomorphic forms I seek to create what is essentially a playful, intellectual conversation between surrealism and minimalism, its intention is to create dreamlike narratives which toy with ideas of materiality and substance. The fluidity and fluency of the ink produces chimera presences, rendering visible microscopic and sentient forms, in a bid to create images that are catalytic to expansive imagination.   There is an emphasis on the power of the line, and its ability to create tension. This linear influence is plucked from current trends in animation suggesting a time-based element to the stillness of the paper.  This ‘time-based’ sense of accelerated and diverse evolution induces a frisson of discovery, with humour, its aftertaste.   Denise McShannon
