Attention 

 The penny dropped today while driving to work- what am I trying to achieve through making art? Apart from satisfying the essential need to make it? 

I am trying to use drawing to get other people to give their attention, not to me as the maker or mischievous perpetrator, but to the moment, to their physical presence and place at that moment in time….to notice. 

I am not interested in permanence or representational imagery or in making work to be sold. I am also starting to question my ‘footprint’ as an artist in the selection of what I use in the process.

‘You are here’. 

Except most of the time we are so preoccupied that we are not.
