Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Drawing subject matter from sketches and images from public and personal spaces with a focus on the interior and still life, my works are entering a dialog with painting’s modernist historical canons as well as ponder on our ambiguous relationship with colonial narratives, exoticism, and taste. Sometimes dreamy, sometimes and intense and with the use of lights on the driving seat, the work allows space for invention, creating a gap between looking and making, between the real and the imaginary. Everyday observations become exaggerated through the use of colour and change of scale, focusing on what surprises me or grasps my attention. Stemming from reality, observed elements are weaved into fictional compositions that allow a multitude of readings. Equally, the very process of mark making opens up a platform to investigate painting’s power to transcend imagery by breaking it down to the basics of colour, shape, pattern, and composition.
