Resulting from spending time in Frigiliana, Spain, this work shows various threads of communication. These may be visible and manifest themselves (as in wires, ladders and lines), though often they are barely implied (as in distances, proximities, dispositions). Always, they suggest an inner world and intimations of what is beyond. These tendrils persist: tenuous, questioning, playful, floating or rooted, connecting other-worldly universes to our day-to-day existence, bridging continents, ways of life, and indeed, the constraints of the quotidian and the freedom of imagination. To reach beyond boundaries, to embrace the unusual and the unexpected, and to crystallize the experience results in a body of work that encompasses a deep sense of curiosity and yearning.
Thank you to my friends and hosts Rosalind Burns, Ana Ortiz and Antonio Canedo from Frigiliana, Spain, for their generous collaboration and to artist Perry Olivier for using his printmaking studio.
