'It is difficult to say what the work is about, what it means, since that can change constantly, depending on who reads it and what they bring to the work. That said, one common experience is a sense of expectation that something is yet to happen. Or maybe it has to do with the muted tones that characterise these pieces, and the fact that the intensive investment of labour is self evident in the methodically worked lead surfaces. I think when you spend a long time on a piece something happens that almost seems to slow the work down. It becomes more concentrated, more intimate - it begins to have a certain stillness and a unique silence of it's own.
Like for instance in LOST, there's the cloud and the ladder and the responses
those forms evoke, such as the dense leaden heaviness of the cloud, the
inherent aspirational nature of the ladder and the correspondence between those two elements. But there is more here - there are things that float around in the work that are difficult to pin down. Complex fleeting thoughts and sensations running just below - refusing to surface.
Perhaps it's in these things. The things that are so very difficult to define - the
things that are not even really there at all - that meaning can be found.'
