Although the objects rarely reference things in the world openly, I do want them to relate to architectural spaces and therefore also the functions of these places. This discourse between object, space, function and viewer is where the core essence of my practice resides. I like to think of my practice as painting without setting out to paint. Aspects such as the characteristics of a surface, the weight of canvas, the rigidity and stiffness of dry paint all come into the equation as vehicles to create structure.
