Q: Is the gesture of the line from you as the artist.. or the representation of the depicted?
A:"It’s always felt like a subconscious representation of information in general, in as much as a means of sorting/navigating information, internal and external. If it’s visual information that everyone recognises, (eg depicting a person), then I suppose I’m attempting to convey the familiar in my own subconscious hierarchy of sensory information. I find I’m inclined internally to dial things down to some functional/mechanical essence. But that natural mechanism I’ve observed (like a computer) is constantly sorting sensory information into binary camps to make sense of it."
