The Labyrinth Project

"I have used a set of four photographs to capture four different scenes taken on my journeys into the Labyrinth of the world outside my studio. The locations are a forked road looking up at Lions Head, a path that is burnt on either side looking down onto signal hill, a path looking into the protected area of Bakoven and a path looking up at an ascent into Nursery ravine.

I have used a photograph as reference and then made it meaningful by returning to it using drawing, silkscreen, and video. Going back to the location in video has allowed me to see that things have changed and developed in terms of the vegetation.

I am in the process of raising funds to take all 12 drawings further to the silkscreens stage. Forked Road on Lions' head is the first silkscreen I have developed. It is a series of 3 drawing where the labyrinth grows bigger. The labyrinth is embedded into the mark-making of the drawing. The clear spaces of the labyrinth allow spaces to breathe and give the planned view."
