Artist

My paintings are lush and colourful landscapes that exist as part of a fantastical, re-imagined place and as an amalgamation of references to the history of landscape painting. I have applied a hyper, rose-tinted view of the world and my vision is of a place and time untouched; it is wild, rampant and ripe almost to the point of rotten. The surface joyousness is tempered by an uneasy sense of abandonment. These paintings are themselves fetishized; the layered resin has an extreme high gloss finish, akin to stained glass and similarly the paintings are abundant with light-giving colour. read full statement
