Petroglyphs

 

This work was inspired by petroglyphs: the frayed, ambiguous glimpses of ancient stories painted on the walls of caves or carved into rocks, bearing witness to the passing of massive periods of time. I am interested in the idea that we leave behind an echo, consciously or unconsciously. I enjoy the way the layers of fabric, colour and mark-making mirror the layers of time enfolding and obscuring what has gone before.
