Chromatic and incantatory in colour, alive with rumblings and vibrations of energy, I want to make and question what painting feels like. I make paintings through synaesthesia of colour and material that evoke memory in the language of abstraction.
A magpie of sorts, I collect and restlessly experiment with varied materials and surfaces that find their way into my painting, pushing my work into realms of the tactile. I manipulate these materials in a way that attaches and clings themselves to the stretcher, sometimes bulging, beyond the edges of the frame on the wall. I’m interested in the trickery and trompe-l'œil of using paint combined with material in both physical and illusionary ways. I find that I’m searching for a gesture through different materials and mediums that tropes a visceral experience, to feel with your eyes.
