'The human mind enjoys impressive visions of unearthly creatures'―Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas The Oceans are a world of myth and mystery, the depths hiding unknown marvels. 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with water; the sea is everything and the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. ‘20,000 Leagues’ refers to the distance travelled by my pencils as I explore the mechanics of nature and ocean dwellers through a clockwork lens. Starting from a point of realistic naturalism I journey through a world of life based on cogs, gears, wheels, and mechanical constructions. Graphite drawings with hints of colour delight in complex detail inviting you to closely examine each work and explore its creative engineering. Early in Jules Verne’s novel, Professor Aronnax asks ‘What goes on in those distant depths? What creatures inhabit or could inhabit those regions … It is almost beyond conjecture.' I like to dare to make conjectures.
