‘These fictitious landscapes are pieced together from fragments, random images, found objects and old maps that were collected and accumulated in my studio during the year. The old tins I integrate into each painting are used to select the figures and buildings, to set them apart from their surroundings or provide a different perspective – often functioning like a magnifying glass’
