‘Much of my recent work has centred around the developments within the city of London. I seek to explore the relationship between these built environments and those who inhabit them, sometimes figures are of central importance or of implied presence. I like to use their movement as a metaphor for energy within the city and passage of time. The resulting drawings are very large in size, allowing us to enter the drawing as a physical presence, becoming involved. These works take many months, changing and developing, content evolving and surprising conclusions being made. Through these pieces I want to generate that sense of energy and excitement which is representative of being part of the city.’
