This chapter of work reflects the continuing evolution of my preoccupation with all manner of drawing, and the matter and energy I discover behind form. It also speaks of my elation to be living way out in the deserts of New Mexico in the US. My experiences of this most powerful, stunning, arid land and my various encounters with lions and snakes are all embedded in the work. The energy is heightened as are the colors. There is a new freedom in which a simple set of lines or gestures now carry the narrative and create the visual depths.
