Statement

Statement

“My practice is an ongoing exploration into graphic surrealism, ambient clashes & sporadic outbursts.

My work is experimental; I am interested in the process of painting, the material itself & the ways it can manifest but also the constraints it propagates. The imagery within my paintings is made up of motifs; semi organic marks & forms. These are like letters or symbols. They allow me to compose short sentences. They are my workings out, sums, trying to decipher and understand things, breaking large ideas into their most simplest of displays, almost into ideograms.

I am in constant reflection about our place in the universe; our significance or insignificance. I enjoy trying to capture a sense of humanity in a space like void, a sense of humour in an oxygenless vacuum. Portholes of flat space & monolithic or phallic shapes regularly make an appearance within my compositions. They become methods of transportation through space and time while acting as a symbol for flesh, the soul, the human journey.”
