UK artist currently living in Zurich, Switzerland Exhibited in UK, Zurich, New York, China and Bratislava.
My work explores the transient nature, purpose and interconnecting relationships of random moving figurative groupings and their interaction within the space around them. Examining and incorporating the current social, political and religious conditions surrounding us, creates a narrative statement within the work and by expressing a personal response to co-occupying the space communicates a sense of displacement and a question of belonging and relevance within that space.
The work originates from drawing, photographic and printing studies of large public spaces where there is a continual sense of movement of form within the structures. These studies enable me to abstract the essence of emotion, form, space and colour for the paintings.
Oil paint, the main medium, I feel communicates more desirably the sense of continual movement and fluidity of the form within the work. Painterly mark making and a limited colour pallet further enhances the suggestion of mood and place, creating a more engaging visual experience and encourages the viewer to explore further and personally interact within the narrative and space of the work.
