drawings • words and worlds series • 2013 - 2016





'Words and Worlds' is an allegorical series combining pencil drawing with the function of language in order to capture and explore a space between the real and unreal. Based on surreal analogies, this series both builds around metaphysical content and deals with a diverse and layered reality. Strange and otherworldly creatures take centre stage and each piece becomes a scene, minimal and ambiguous, allowing for its own narrative(s) to develop and for the common integrated theme of the series to emerge. The viewer is drawn into a creative play of meaning and discovery where the words as titles and puns are meant to prompt and further stretch one's imagination while also promoting language as an integral medium that reflects as much as it invents.
