The collection of images is directly appropriated from places where battle has occurred, with references to war as well as an acknowledgement to the conflict inside ourselves. My drawings are about ‘storying’ – they are neither didactic nor rhetorical; the ‘scar’ drawings are related to factors surrounding the threats presented when fighting for survival, and the effects on the mortal spirit.’
