A series of graphite drawings made as an in response to the Kafka novella Metamorphosis and the biological, physical process. “ As an artist I am fascinated by change and the transformation that each of us go through as we experience life, I explore this through my environment taking inspiration from worn and broken surfaces and the life which inhabits them” Using a technique of building up and removing layers or graphite to create the final image. Each drawing in the Metamorphosis Series responds to an idea of the process of metamorphosis - a build up of energy or pressure, separation, characteristics which are lost and characteristics which remain. These drawings are all part of an ongoing body of work around transformative processes in nature and also in human psychology.
