About your work

Discipline:        Painting, drawing
Technique:       Acrylic and pencil on paper or linen, glued flat on the wall
Statement:        The works I have been producing recently function as visual conversations about the ways in which individuals can develop and implement a personal ethic or ideology within the broader socio-political constructs of a consumer society. They serve as meditations on singular moments or points of individual contention in the formation of cultural identities. The scenes which I depict are constructed, synthesized from a diverse array of sources, rather than being drawn directly from reality. Techniques of narrative, pattern and perspective provide a way in to a subjective engagement with the ideological questions embedded in the works. It is never my intention to present singular, grand concepts or a closed set of ideas, but to elicit questions and reflections from the viewer.
Plans for your residency?         To make a series of works which are ‘cut outs’ rather than traditional rectangular compositions. Some of these works will be shown in Turin in November, and some in Malaysia in December.
