Passage series

The word 'Passage' embodies movement within and between time, space and place, and can be considered in philosophical, metaphorical and physical terms. 'The density of time' consists of accumulated marks made over a period of time. The variations of size, pressure and material indicative of the state of mind of its maker. The lines become cadences of days, forming unique patterns and rhythms as the density of time accrues. Past marks disintegrate at the same time as they support and structure the present. 'The fullness of time' uses the myths of Icarus, the Phoenix and the Dove to explore our desire to live beyond the boundaries of our earthly existence, yet the materiality of the work grounds us firmly in the cycle of nature where growth and decay is the only possible outcome of the natural passage of time.
