My latest body of work is a powerful return to drawing on paper. It explores the diversity in overlapping coloured paper, creating an illusion of watching nature through a glazed outer surface. It is about the viewer’s position and how changing it affects the process of perception. In these the large-scale drawings, lines and structures depicting organic content often giving a three-dimensional impression comes to life with the viewer’s movement. The name of this series of works, ‘On Nature’, was borrowed from the name given to the written works of the early Greek philosophers; texts concerning how to describe, organise and explain the universe and its contents. What, in the most general terms, is the nature and the unity of the universe? And what can we hope to learn about it?
