My work is informed by my background in structural engineering and is rooted in my interest in architectural detail and space and the way that shape and form provide structural stability.
It incorporates the techniques and formal qualities of technical drawing before the advent of CAD – qualities of precision, regimentation, the repetition of line and reference to geometry and measurement.
Unlike CAD these works contain minute inconsistencies. The spacing, whilst measured, is imprecise, the thickness of line is variable.
These ‘flaws’ evident in the hand-drawn pieces, add qualities that make each unique – sometimes the arrangements of line create visual disturbances and illusions, exploiting the phenomenon of parallax, taking the work beyond the original architectural or formal references.

Whilst the works are clearly concerned with man-made form and celebrate the modern, they are also pieces in their own right – abstractions that explore and extend pictorial space through the use of light, line and colour. These works are also developed into abstractions by the exploration related drawing techniques.
The work in this exhibition is new to the Asylum Gallery and includes wall hung works on Paper and on Perspex and Board together with two Three Dimensional pieces.
