Drawings
Recent drawings focus on the idea of enclosure, and examine architecture as a means of containment and control that operates to affect a sense of social order. Some of the drawings reference structures that are built to enclose, encapsulate or fortify. They refer to the desire for progress on one hand, and the need to repress, exclude, contain or remove on the other. The structures depicted reference the architecture of prisons, bunkers and military installations; dense, constricted spaces that embody the language of armour and operate as literal and metaphorical iterations of ideological enclosure. These works fuse the modernist vision of architecture as an indicator of social progress with that of the military installation. Here, hybrid architectonic structures manifest the language of force, protection and fortification, becoming brutalist enclosures or quasi monumental edifices that function as receptacles of power, and operate as defensive bulwarks against its loss.
