BEHIND THE LINES

Sumi ink drawings,  2005 – Present

These are a collection of then and now, from the first discovery of sumi ink in 2005. I obsessively drew iconography of the Japanese landscape and the perverse undertones that permeate the society.  Edging the line between erotic and playful these works represent the ongoing compulsive tendencies to illustrate whats on my mind.

THIS BEACH CRAZY

Byron Bay | Sumi ink on paper & canvas

For some the beach is a place where people gather stripped down immersed in a hedonistically natural playground; for others it’s where human existence stops at the edge of the map.

TOKYO TIMES

Sumi ink works, Tokyo | 2004-2010

From the early exploration of the sumi ink medium created while in Tokyo. This collection of landscapes and portraits not only allowed me to experiment with the medium but also discover the sentimental vibration of the Japanese culture.

THE PANTAKU

Sumi ink prints,  2010

Inspired by the Japanese tradition of Gyotakuprints originating from the mid-19th century fishermen documenting their catch. Over time the prints were used  as an early form of photo transfer to record the memory of the catch before it is eaten. As well as a subtle boasting charm to show off to the other fishermen and family members. In this same process I have made transfer prints on rice paper of the underwear from women I have experienced and remain in my memory.
