THE ISLANDS OF NILJORA
From madness and nothingness came the creature Niljora...
These pen and ink drawings surround my mythical world, The Islands of Niljora, a reflection on our human story from ancient history to the modern world. I play with perspective and use various forms of narration - eg. continuous, panoptic, synoptic. With these I guide the viewer through a dizzying path of tales, metaphors and symbols, denoting the ever-renewing nature of history, the fleeting manner of the mind, and the mercurial nature of stories. My works, from abstracted figurative worlds, to my realist pieces, form artefacts of this created world like invented realities, and whisper its secrets.
