"Journeys are in time as well as space, not static destinations but a process. it has been fun unwrapping this idea and working towards the Ashtorre exhibition. After some blind alleys i chose two important journeys I'd made, one routine and the other an adventure of a lifetime, still vivid after 48 years. Other images relate to other people's searches, and a dream."
"Making works concerned with 'Journey' was always going to be either too restrictive or too free. I chose, like most people I think, to be very free and wide with my work. At first I made drawings and prints in stark black and white concerned with the landing of a small machine called "Philae" on a comet 300 million miles away. Just about the longest journey one could think of. They were fun to do but ultimately unsatisfying.
So to give myself more scope I fell back on making work that could be associated with a journey but were really about my own experimental journey into making images that pleased me. That gave me scope to do anything that I fancied on a whim. Painting, printing and drawing as the mood took me."
