I am interested in the abandoned and obsolete in relation to contemporary culture. My recent drawings focused on the modern detritus frozen within the deserts of California and Arizona. Here in the majestic and desolate landscapes, objects of mobility such as planes, cars and other vehicles lay motionless and frozen in time. This imagery is crafted with an obsessive and time consuming colour pencil technique which forces a lengthy meditation on the image.
