Artist's description:

This BIC biro drawing explores a cycling journey around the region of Paphos in 2013. Each of the images are overlaid with one another forming an alternative form of mapping reality. The image explores my memories of cycling around the Island of Aphrodite who is represented by the Goat.

The Goat has long been associated with the Goddess Aphrodite and was used as a sacrificial animal upon the alter to Aphrodite to bring luck and favour in the celebration within the Cult of Aphrodite. Cyprus, as the Island of Aphrodite, is linked to the celebration of love and wellbeing.
The bicycle I used to get around Cyprus during 2013 can also be seen in this image. Through exploring ways we map reality and how we remember the past, the mind links similar events together in our memory - sometimes causing confusion and misinterpretions of remembering, which this artwork represents; becoming a labyrinth of images, each interacting and intersecting with one another.
During my time on Cyprus I happened by chance a radio programme on the World Service that reported on ways our memory remembers. Through placing similar events together, in some instances can cause us to mis-remember events - this is something I am interested in my work, exploring the role of memory plays in the how images can mis-represent the past in our mind. This is something known in the Police via witness statements where people remember only that which is of particular importance to them.
