Mixed media, painting

I am an explorer of unknown spaces, of obscure and dissonant landscapes. I paint and draw to map my experiences.

In my work, I am not so much interested in literal physical representation of objects or the topography of a place, rather the way I can explore the subjective nature of perception, translation of memory, history, place and space. I am looking for the potential of structure and atmosphere to conjure the image. My background in philosophy and languages, as well as travel help inform these translations.

I am predominantly a painter of large-scale abstracts in oil, although I am increasingly incorporating drawing into my work. Painting allows me to mould my images, to cut, scratch and layer my surface allowing the image to unfold over time. My drawing is more immediate, using mark making, materials and composition to inform my painting, as well as stand alone as finished work.

I savour the possibilities and surprises of the materials themselves and the possibilities of interpretation.
