I have struggled for a long time during this particular process with the relationship between my wish to paint – on the one hand – and my ‘need’ to draw – on the other. In the end I have decided that there is a pleasing compatibility between the two actions and together, in the details,  they bring both the hand and the ‘other’ to a state within which understanding and meaning can breathe and survive.
