It is very difficult to say what the work is about, what it means, since that depends on the viewer and what they bring to the work. One common experience is a sense of expectation that something is yet to happen. Perhaps it has to do with the muted tones that characterise these pieces, and the fact that the investment of labour is self evident in the methodically worked lead surfaces. I think when you spend a long time on a piece something happens that almost seems to slow the work down. It becomes more concentrated and takes on a unique stillness and silence of it's own.
Like for instance in Lost, there's the leaden weight of the cloud, the aspirational nature of the ladder and the correspondence between those two elements. But there is more here than can be seen.There are things that run beneath that are difficult to define, fleeting thoughts and sensations, shadow like - refusing to surface.
