‘Painting is a philosophical enterprise that doesn't always involve paint.' Howard Halle This quote remains central to my work, especially as curating is now an important part of my creative practice. It all comes down to placement, context and expression, no matter what media I may have in hand, whether it’s my own creation or someone else’s - especially if it’s someone else’s. The creation of art or an art experience is bound to the expression of self. My latest work is highly self-referential, taking images of previous abstract works and digitally combining and altering them to create new works which are so far removed from the originals as to be nearly unrecognisable. These pieces become a pattern and an archive, a sort of mental impression, of my life. read full statement
