About The Artwork

This drawing is part of series on the theme of metamorphosis, inspired by both the Kafka novella and the process in biological terms. Although the Kafka story has little joy in it(if, indeed any) however, I see it as a playful metaphor for the rebellion against the pressures of adult life. Gregor the bug can only sleep, eat and amuse himself, Gregor the man must exist in a world of work, demands and schedules. I like this notion of a return to childish pleasure and taken a playful and direct approach to making these drawings. I hope that the resulting drawings invoke feelings of curiosity and wonder when you see them. All the drawings in this series are made with graphite on paper using again a layering and blending technique. I am constantly exploring levels of conscious design within my artistic practice, this current process is an evolution in technique from earlier work.

Predominantly known for her freeform, organic paintings, her reverence for spontaneous gesture in her paintings draws from Zen, Buddhism and other ancient Eastern philosophies which embrace the beauty of purposelessness and play. Her whole approach is one of immediacy, working wet colour into wet and layering glazes gives her work its recognisable softness and form. b.1980 Somerset UK.
