My practice focuses on contextualising the discourse about the painterly form within the technological medium. The canvas is composed of two main elements: a background painted in oil and foreground drawn digitally and printed with a drawing robot Axidraw3. Combining both, computer generated imagery and a tangible expression of painting.

The foreground makes a stance on disruptive design with a particular regard to grids and systems. Liking to combine contrasting elements, my imagery choices are informed by re-appropriated Internet found material. The composition process is practice lead and takes several layers before completion.

The background relates to painterly traditions, with a particular interest in abstract and expressionistic movements. Mainly concerned by internal considerations of painting, I aim at releasing the emotional potential of the painterly surface. Experimenting with colour, shape and composition I explore physical mark making.

Anchored in a process-based practice, my work questions the painterly language within the context of contemporary media.
