Primary mediums:
 OIL ON CANVAS 

 


 

I do not start out with a map of the work, it is not pre-ordained. Ideas for paintings often lurk around for years as tenuous mind visualisations before they physically unfold, side-track, and slip into the depths. Ludicrous yet convincing images with unexpected undertows are presented, where the fantastic is the only way to approach reality with any clarity - paintings that are confrontational yet with empathetic groundings and a metaphorically autobiographical bent. Not objects for passive consumption that fit comfortably within administrated culture, but lucid psychological spaces formed from an interplay between art and life. Images that feel seductively 'other' and steeped in hallucinatory detail from which the viewer can leap into an intangible, perhaps unexpected, realm of feeling.
