"My current practice links drawing, writing and installation. The drawing at The Future of a Promise was realised in situ, drawn directly onto the canvas while everyone was moving about. It is conceived as an installation. The drawing is more minimalist, formed by a specific technique which brings to mind the aesthetic of a scanner or of an unlikely sort of modelling."
