Through drawings my work investigates edge and in between spaces, looking particularly to our urban environment. Underpasses, roadsides, or pieces of individual architecture, places or features that sit at the fringes of urban space. They are functional areas formed or left over from surrounding architecture. Drawn to these places, particularly in Milton Keynes, it is how architecture can define, frame, and communicate use, that in drawings I seek to play over and expand on.
Drawings are informed by photographs taken, along with notes and sketches made, gathering documentation of places of interest. Then in drawings exploring a visualisation, playing with composition to recreate something of these spaces and the physical experience taken from them. Considering both one viewpoint but also multiple snapshots of a place in a piece. The point where one view ends, and another begins attempting to echo the process of reconstructing in the mind the experience taken from a location, playing over architectural components, structure, traces of neglect and wear, and what these spaces may invite, or speak of to the passer by.
