I have lived in a city my whole life and painting offers me a place to exist in beyond the urban. Marks, signs and symbols from around me are appropriated to create this different space.
The creation of the paintings is two fold - I enjoy the physicality of applying paint, but also use digital mark making to reflect upon and map out possibilities. Relationships between colour, form and space are calculated to make the paintings hum. This energy echoes the saturated, busy 21st century city. Like a mirror the paintings reflect what is around them but create a different kind of space too.
