When I started out working on this sketchbook, I expected to be able to have the mental space to work semi continuously to create a seamless narrative, but there were so many interruptions in the process, both artistically and in terms of life events that I found myself pulled in many directions. Images/narratives are constructed out of a variety of media - photographs of clay pieces I have made, sometimes photographed in natural sites, or collaged into other photos I have taken, in Photoshop, old photocopies of mixed media mini-sculptures, drawing and watercolor. Some of the components I rediscovered in files and sketchbooks from art school or just after, some original to the sketchbook. The intention was narrative image making rather than an attempt to speak through a single medium. In the end it was mutated reflection of the story behind the conference of the birds, the search for meaning that encountered many barriers only to come to a stunning clarity at the end.And the stunning clarity was not in the sketchbook - but rather crystalized later in pieces for an exhibition that kind of popped up unexpectedly. No work is idleness, no chaos evades order of some kind even if only perceived from a distance.
