Biography

I focus on how things are visually perceived rather than what is objectively 'real'. Places and occurrences I have seen are broken down into components or motifs and put back together from memory, employing imagination to fill in the gaps. Each piece becomes an intuitive response to daily observations. Horizons, skies, symbols, objects and landmarks jostle with each other during the painting process. Each piece vacillates between representation and non-representation partly due to a merging of different perspectives, time frames and scales. There is a large amount of cross-referencing between works so they are often shown in groups.
