Fine Art and Art History

My work plays upon a series of juxtapositions to create feelings of both tension and intimacy. The colours I use are discordant and harmonising, presented on, in and behind the nude figures, creating zones of increased tension and periods of calm that extend outside of the frame. With colour as my main protagonist, I use it to address uncomfortable dualities within the post-postmodern condition. With technology as the new cultural landscape, we are brought closer together, yet concurrently a space has been created amongst individuals where isolation lurks. One can feel at peace with such isolation yet simultaneously feel discomfort at being isolated.
