statement

 

I paint abstract mixed media works and create sculpture in clay. My studio practice is a physical thinking process; I consider issues related to the human condition, the quality of memory and the nature of reality.

I see beauty in the history of battered surfaces, and the humanity of unintentional marks. Constantly inspired by language, literature, poetry and abstract thinking.

Materiality influences the work; adding and removing layers, seeking to reveal the final piece, rather than deliberately planning.

Looking for an aesthetic experience that revolves around some sort of disclosure or uncovering.

Where there is restraint, and honesty, and an attempt to blur the lines between drawing, painting and sculpture. I feel I am successful.
