In my new works on paper entitled Markers, pastel has become the principal medium combined with charcoal, pencil and paint. This pastel ground offers a corresponding function to the watercolor effects in my canvases, creating an atmospheric space- a fluid, open and indeterminate field of play. However, in these present images a new dimensional framework shapes the borders; providing a measure by which the relationships between various markers or dynamic forces within the open space are traceable. It is a threshold space guided by signs of uncertain outcomes – a mystery awaiting arrival.
