2020 marks a shifting of space, place and self.
A transitional year.
A long breath.
Themes explored include; the self (my, your, and painting), home, comfort, isolation, still life, rhythm, and balance. All through a filter of object based painting.
With a particular focus on materially metaphorical paintings, works that re-present their subject through their materiality. Embodying the image.
“In many ways I see myself as a philosopher (in the traditional sense of the word), who uses the vehicle of art, because words are both limiting and useful, and I believe that art is one of the best places to explore an object:object paradigm. A place of deeper interaction between human and non-human objects.” (Excerpt from an artists talk, 2020.)
