This event has ended.

Artist’s statement:

This exhibition will show the beginnings of a new body of work I have been researching and creating here in Tokyo. Running themes include repetition, simplicity, order and effect; following the materials - paper (both Japanese paper and regular drawing paper) and sound (a composed work from daily recordings throughout Tokyo and in my studio).

One of my main experiences here has been the juxtaposition of a uniquely defined and extremely successful structure within the masses of people, happenings and places…I have never before experienced order like here in Tokyo, where no matter how busy, loud or intense a given space is there is never disorder, and this order is followed in a very diligent and polite manner. Without consciously meaning to, this has become evident in the work that I am producing through different strategic decisions made throughout the process of experimenting and creating whilst following the materials I have chosen to use.

This work will continue to develop when I return home.

I would like to thank Art Centre Ongoing, Flax Art Studios, The Arts Council of Northern Ireland and The British Council for giving me the opportunity, time and support to begin creating this new body of work in Tokyo - this time and experience have been invaluable and I am very grateful.
