Artist statement

  • Scraps, leftovers, remnants. All collaged together to create a new visual order. These fragments have been ‘foraged’, so to speak. Uprooted from their original context, captured through a lens and coated in layers of slushy paint which are in turn fragmented and realigned.
  • Navigating the space between the natural, the digital and the painterly, my work plays with the act of looking. A jolted movement here, a familiar feature there as the gaze wanders between distinct detail and self-satisfied brush stroke. The whole is an interplay of pushing forward and pulling back. The gaze encounters a — somewhat uneasy — tension between what was and what is. A state of flux that struggles with itself.
