Relatio Interruptus. Ink on acid free card. 11 June 2007.
This drawing is about how some men can sometimes congregate egoistically at barbecues,
while they piss up, and leave the women out. A mixture of bravado, arrogance, and macho attitude seems to occur.
I have found this is more in the older age bracket of the 60’s plus group, but I could well believe that where there is a barbecue, and a group of men drinking their booze, the possibility may just occur there too. Is this purely an Australian cultural habit?

The idea for this was to draw what isn’t real as a real image and to use the positive spacing as a
negative interpretation. So for example, the naked lady daydreaming of monsters attacking her is
being attacked by lizards, with a man drawn facing her, thought there is a face
drawn on the back of his jacket, looking the other way. Other images drawn in this imaginatively convoluted drawing are
nerd head, king’s head, crossed, houses, a letter, a clown, a rose, a shower head with sprays and drips, buildings , snake,
steps, roads that lead to nowhere, cogs and loopy tubing, other odd bits, and lizards attacking as if on a city!
I think Freud may have something to think about with this one!

Three types of chests are being exposed here. The High Priestess is exposing her chest, there is
also a chest fulls of skulls in it, and the lid is wide open, and also the chest of drawers, which both drawers are open
of which the top drawer is full to the brim of coins. She holds one of them in her right hand
which she guards close to her body.
The Sun rises in the East. There is a Mobilum above her head
which signifies infinity and the endless circles of cycles. There is a mirror on the wall behind the chest of drawers
which reflects the back of her head and crown. The night sky in the East…or is it the West?…
shows an apple tree with 9 apples. Her right foot is shackled, with a key right beside it to unlock it any time. Her left foot looks clubbed,
or perhaps, protecting the shackled foot. The wall and the flooring are woven matting, and is full of square, white spacing into
nothingness…or white light from the sun? An arrow with three hearts surrounding it points directly at her head. She wears a star
on a necklace on her chest. The Moon is high in the black sky.
The concept of this drawing is full of Esoteric symbolism.

When I’m busy , soo busy with art work, sometimes some parts
of the table are reserved for sanity..and it STILL gets messy too!

Focus Series is a conceptual set of four black and white drawings,
each of the four stages in how we assimilate information.
Focus in Perspective is the way we start to see the patterning and draw
conclusions from that information and draw a perspective on that information.
The second drawing, Focus in Objective is when we identify what we can see,
and draw it out and examine it as an object.
Focus In Subjective is where we throw it back into our brain and synthesise the
information against all other objects of information.
The compartments are where each fact is stored and the diagonal lines represent the neurons
sending and receiving information for comparison
The fourth drawing, Focus Introspective, (sometimes I call this drawing ‘Pumpkin Head!),
is about the processing of all the information,
melding and assimilating it back into the new patterning of inward knowledge, and becoming it.
Thus, the insatiable urge of the thirsting for knowledge.

In 2005, I had to go and get abdominal exploratory tests.
Frankly, I was a bit upset by the whole process, and the inconvenience of recuperation.
So, I drew this drawing showing the fears one can have in regards into the unknown:
Cocoons being found inside your body, and animals and nursery rhyme characters
all turning into mischievous taunting nightmare things!
It’s enough to make you do a drawing about it!
Linocut printing on cotton. W.S.U. 2004.
This shows a portioned section of a much longer & larger work.
Printmaking can have many good practical uses.
This is the same linocut , but hand painted after the initial print has matured.
