dc.description.abstractI have always been attracted to the asymmetrical, the uncanny, the mutated, the deviation, and the odd. These preoccupations were made manifest through my drawing practice. Friends, family, and acquaintances would often describe my doodles as dark, disgusting, abhorrent, and grotesque. Little did I know then, what rich history I was setting my foot on by reveling in these comments. What began as a heavily illustrative graphic art practice has been profoundly altered by this period of focused practical research. This document charts the process of making and thinking about these discordant forms, and the confusion, evolution and self-revelation that has been integral to the process.en_NZ
