Figure And Ground animates graphite pencil drawing works, depicting a scene based on family photographs, fractured memories and subliminal stills. The imagery ambiguously and cohesively represents ideas of landscape, figurative, still life and abstraction in art making. Shifting between formal, conceptual and emotional means, the elusive dark silhouette finale is to be buried in a drawing.
