"I see my work as a means of thinking and understanding through the process of doing. Such action follows a methodology which allows scope for invention and chance. Negation and destruction also play a role as the image finds its form. This destruction in the creative process is a reflection of the pace of life in modern society, the obsession with the new, the constant destruction and renewal of cities. Conceptually I am interested in revealing the almost primordial inner darkness of the self and relating to the very real experience of an Australian nocturnal vastness. Conversely this darkness is also consumed by excessive light."
