Touching upon the language of both drawing and sculpture, my work seeks to blur the distinctions between these parallel  mediums.  Prompted by an interest in architectural plans, I am fascinated by the relationship between the representation of architectural space upon a two-dimensional plane and its existence as three-dimensional construct. This has led me to attempt to create impressions of constructed space – the interior of a room, a garden shed – upon the flat paper plane, using a process and materials which are readily associated with drawing.  Through placing a sheet of paper against a wall and repeatedly and meticulously drawing over the surface until the paper warps and tears, a fragile cast of the space is created; a drawing which contains an echo of  the physical actuality of space.
