'Arena', was a three-month residency at Lakeside Arts which culminated in the production of a series of large-scale charcoal portraits that depicted members of the public who visited the gallery.
One of the main distinguishing features of this approach was the use of the gallery walls as a canvas for the works. In this light, the execution of the drawings directly onto the walls of the gallery, and their subsequent erasure, was used as a device to make reference to and further explore the impermanence and shifting nature of the identity.
