    Biography

     Derelict structures found on trips to the British coast, already sculptural and painterly, become ready-mades, of sorts, constructed by an unknown hand, wrapped, layered, lived in, weathered over time, collected and transformed into paint, parts edited out, slowed down, drifted off.

    Edge places are often scene setters; panoramic container ports zigzagging commodities around the globe, an out of season shoreline, and zooming in, the stripe of a canvas windbreak.

    There is evidence of a real place, but where veils or shields or night time light obscure and reinvent and cancel out time. Placement is often formal, sometimes graphic, and paint is layered, relishing the subject. Colour is heightened or removed altogether, but the material is always present.
