In a series of drawings, collectively titled, ’Nests’, I weave a mass network of branch or capillary-like structures, often embedded with tangled ladders. These stark networks create unknown, menacing, depth. They become sinister traps as much as they represent, by title, somewhere homely and secure. Whilst one imagines what hides in the depths, the depicted tangled mass takes on a biomorphic quality. My inspiration for these Nests’ is inspired by the crows nests adorning trees along the cross-country running routes he takes along the undulating landscape of Bedfordshire. After decades of living in London, I often imagine these nests as tightly packed networks of interconnecting dwellings that reflect the mass urban networks of the city.
