A fascination with travel and the marks and traces we leave on the land runs like a thread throughout my work; but whilst journeys, maps and aerial views continue to have a role to play they are gradually becoming more ambiguous and less specific. Now many elements of these experiences such as glimpses of colours and textures, the fragmented memories of journeys and a sense of driving through, just as much as flying over, are coming together as the work continues to develop in a more abstract, expressive way.

Biography

A fascination with travel and the marks and traces we leave on the land runs like a thread throughout my work; but whilst journeys, maps and aerial views continue to have a role to play they are gradually becoming more ambiguous and less specific. Now many elements of these experiences such as glimpses of colours and textures, the fragmented memories of journeys and a sense of driving through, just as much as flying over, are coming together as the work continues to develop in a more abstract, expressive way.

Whilst travelling I take photographs and sometimes exhibit them alongside the paintings, however I have re-discovered the value of keeping a sketchbook rather than relying on photography for my source material. By working freely, avoiding the specific and maintaining an element of ambiguity I hope to encourage the viewer to bring their own interpretations to the work.
