For the past 10 years, I’ve been working with the idea that art might be found within coded number systems, especially where an ordered and progressive mathematical repetition is dominant, I Ching, Fibonacci, Morse, to mention a few, but in particular Binary Code. After much research into exactly what Binary Code is, I began to formulate a structure that opened up a whole new approach into my art practice. This structure like nature is organic; indeed, nature exerts a continual influence over my work. Even severely abstract constructions draw upon theories of growth for their forms. And, in turn, I have been able to draw upon these theories through my knowledge of geometry as a constructive aid by which my ideas acquire visible form. This visible form may manifest itself through the mediums of printmaking and sculpture, for I do believe there are predestined elements to all things. However, I deliberately do not use figure or ground, and I never allow social or political agendas to influence my work. Maurice Ravel once quoted “music needs playing, not interpreting” and that’s how I see my work as an ongoing, open-ended enquiry, and I leave the theorising to others.
