My art practice is concerned with 'thirdspace' as defined by Edward W Soja; a space that lies in our peripheral vision, does not usually take centre stage, but is nevertheless vitally important for creative thought and explorations beyond binary visions. My interest in 'thirdspace', began when I started to consider peripheral locations and objects as places that express more about humanity than those in the limelight. Objects or buildings, that you walk by daily or are familiar with, become emblematic of 'thirdspace' for me, and these manifest themselves as recurring motifs in my painting practice - the more they are re-done, the more they become embedded in the visual language. I am a founder member of paintclubeast - a forum to discuss contemporary issues in painting - read full statement
