I like to break an idea down; evoke with depth and narrative rather than drown a piece in colour. I want my images and narratives to unfold… invite you to explore.
My passion is to abstract from popular culture. I’ve got a ‘Dog Thing’… it goes deeper than appreciation, I love analysing their behaviors, and blissful ignorance then comparing their similarities and the irony against human behavior. It can reveal a lot about who we are.
I think it’s important to emphasize, I choose not to use stencils or printed collages; these works are all freehand, free flowing original and unique compositions. I’m not going for perfection, this is first hand, free flowing, storytelling.
This work takes a great deal of planning. I spend countless hours in my journal, simplify iconic images and tropes, contextualising, reworking and then compiling into large paintings using acrylic paint, markers and charcoal.
So, I hope you enjoy my paintings. They are meticulously executed and prepared and are of a quality that will hold their own in any space, contact me if you have any questions.
