The activity inherent in drawing can embody a moment of thought which links both the conscious and the subconscious. Here drawing and the experience of drawing exist as both archaeology and archive becoming record of events and, simultaneously, a disintegration of that record.
Marks and gestures are layered and hidden, concealed and exposed.
Chance processes and random responses serve as a method of working.

The Random Transaction Series exist as a drawn record of essentially unplanned graphic events.
