The thing that fascinates and perplexes me about dark field monotypes is precisely this: it is only through the removal and sustained absence of one thing that another is brought into being.
I like to make pictures and I tend to favor the land and the sky as my subject matter, though I quite like to draw hotdogs as well. When I’m making my landscape pictures I think about lots of different sorts of things: stories I know, what I’ll have for dinner, what teachers have told me, collating hues. I also think about the wonder and the boredom: about myth, utopia, dystopia, Society of the Spectacle, narcosis, the ghost of Tom O’Bedlam and the unseen, the unknown, and the felt. And Phantasos, son of Somnus. And hotdogs.
