My work currently uses model making as a departure point for the production for highly detailed pencil drawings. Through drawing I am able to explore aspects of working-middle class suburbia along with the possibiles of representation in art. I'm interested through drawing and model-making in creating a contingent reality to our own; a reality that is in someway hardwired to aspects of our own subjectivity. A drawing of a front garden becomes a surreal psychological landscape metaphorical of the Freudian id; the interior of a summerhouse within analogous to the very Lack at the core of our being. Through this association an uncanny metaphysical reality is born where recognisable places and objects from our collective consciousness develop new and uncertain narratives.
