It is through the activity of walking and collecting
of found substances and materials that a personal journal or archive develops.
Natural chalks such as sanguine and iron oxides may end up as small drawings bundled up
into parcels or placed in boxed collections. Raw pigments such as coloured
ochres, green earths as well as plant materials such as nettle pulp may act as a
starting point for her paintings. The substances become washes of colour that act as a
evocation of memory. It is the remembered responses and experiences of the time
spent in a place that contribute to the finished pieces of work.
‘At the point of production, the work is a mix of
recall, intuition and deliberation. The discriminating and sensitive procedure induces a
trace of an image, its history, its relative significance and a physical embodiment of the
passing of time.’ Chris Jennings, London.
