I have created a series of work which I call ‘Constructing Mistakes’ using asemic writing, with blue ink and pyrographic pens, to form undefined marks on paper. I like to give the unconscious mind a free rein in order to make creative mistakes.
The everyday conscious, rational, mind finds it hard to read the signs I make in any known lexical semantic. So, the viewer will have to make sense with their own feelings attuned to not knowing where they stand or where they are going with the images. This allows, instead, for an imaginary language to be sensed, or a language of the imagination, to be understood.
When I make this work I have a sense of being lost and floundering in an unconscious dynamic of movements and feelings. I hold the pen and make marks on the paper. The marks can be seen as the tracks of a journey’s pattern. These undefined lines and scribbles record the unconscious forces of my presence as an art-maker. Which allows for an undefined way of being present.
I am an artist living and working in London.
