Julian Wakelin's paintings evolve through small drawings and scribbles which hint at a physicality without referring directly to the outside world. The drawings are transferred to canvas where they are edited, some forms are removed others left to survive so the images evolve with both painterly aspects and drawn elements. This allusion to graffiti like text, maps or diagrams suggest ideas of memory, recognition and permanence while inviting the viewer to enter into a cryptic dialogue.
