painting

In my contemporary paintings, I use paint like any material, more to obtain a surface, a texture, a sculptural property, rather than in a more traditional way, to represent.

I like to work on different surfaces to evoke a particular feeling, association, or thought, such as velvet, rubber, vinyl and wood as well as canvas. Many of my recent paintings are on velvet which I use for it's particular light changing properties and the striking juxtaposition possible between the surface and the mark making.

There is an adamant, relentless, intense and heavily worked aspect to most of my work, with many ideas working through and underneath, often shown through repetitive mark making that may or may not be deliberate or random. This mark making translates into my sculpture so that the marks become the intensity of materials used or from the labour intensive process involved.

During Covid-19 I have returned to a more traditional way of painting, as seen in the Vulture work below. I find this way of working ideal for improved isolation and very meditative in these strange times!
