Promise works

The Promise works are based on fears of the future. Allowing the uninterrupted movement of paint to create an organic division between land and sea, these works explore fear in its most basic state: fear of the new, fear of loss, fear of the future itself.

These works marked the first departure from a rigid graphic style into a dualistic approach to making: beginning with movement of water untouched by the artist’s hand, ending with the obsessive contouring of these notional maps. Simultaneously accidental and controlled, the process highlights the intrinsic duality of placelessness and desire for belonging.
