Work is a reaction to places, sites and events that resonate and stir something in me. They could be both insignificant or catastrophic; a singular leaf on a track, a fleeting glimpse from a train captured on a mobile phone, or a world disaster. It is about locating my presence in a complex world, where I often feel displaced. Painting and drawing become the main tools of the mediative process once a connection is made with an object or a place. The imagery constantly changes and the work is resolved when the tension between layers, shapes and paint draws the viewer into the space. I am not interested in reproducing the 'obvious visible' but a resulting visible made through the act of painting and drawing.
