Line is the main visual tool of expression, serving as a metaphorical symbol of time that traces the history layered within each piece. It disguises and reveals the image through a process similar to excavation.  It also reflects the tangling and untangling of an imaginative web of memories, experiences and events. Inscriptions: Painting The Line Touring Exhibition in UK & Ireland was curated by Reyahn King, Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery. In 2001-2002 the Inscriptions exhibition travelled to James Hockey Gallery, Surrey Institute of Art & Design, Farnham; Aston Hall, Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery; Stanley Picker Gallery, Kingston University, Kingston-upon-Thames; UK; Model Arts and Niland Gallery, Sligo, Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar and Courthouse Gallery, Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Ballycastle, Co.
