My pictures derive from a delight in the world around. A play on the mundane and everyday reality we slip through on our way to somewhere else. They are about collective moments, some tragic, some euphoric, when the sharing of an experience gives significance to something unnoticed. These quiet revelations bind, nurture and reassure us in a world that quickly passes. Paint, in a digital age, is a slow inaccurate and clumsy medium, making it perfect for capturing and re- contextualising this fragile transience.
