Born in Jersey, the Channel Islands in 1952, Audrain is an artist and designer, and is currently studying for his MFA at Pratt Institute in New York. He also studied art at Plymouth University. Audrain has worked for many year on various projects as the Head of Design at the Jersey Heritage Trust, and has exhibited his works in the Channel Islands, France and now here in Maine.

His works are entirely composed of subtle marks constant in their verticality and weight. Built up in layers, their fragmentary presence coalesces into forms that can be read as transient in the nature of their substance but occupy a place in time and space through their presence and stillness. The forms themselves, if deconstructed, would return to their fragmentary individual existence as isolated parts, detached and separate. A fragmentation of existence that can be seen as symbolic  of our culture’s present condition, a condition that has lead to a sense of alienation in a society that one has participated in the creation of but does not fully comprehend and thus cannot assimilate the whole field of experience into a totality felt to be beautiful, harmonious and meaningful.

These finely woven marks that echo constantly through the work also speak of the very essence of all that is. There is no sharp divide between things in reality. Because of its atomic structure no object can have a sharp boundary - atoms are constituted of elementary particles which all ultimately merge and unite in the whole movement of a universal field. Everything contains everything. No thing is complete in itself, and its full being is realized only in that participation.
