recent work

 

What most interests me in painting is the possibility of transformation, on different levels, through paint and colour.

I have always worked beyond the boundaries of the canvas, extending my paint onto other surfaces including the frame around it, the wall behind, found objects and the human body.

Recent paintings are a meeting of ongoing themes with a new approach. Images of wild creatures, the natural world and our own animal natures have always been important to me. The paintings are about looking inside of myself for ideas, feelings, passions, emotions but at the same time looking out through doors and windows into another world, a parallel universe, a personal utopia or different way of existing.

The paintings are deeply personal but at the same time my aim is for them to carry a resonance that we can all relate to.
