Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.
The dynamics between representation and abstraction with a reference to technology have dominated my practice throughout my career. My work blends realism, illustration and expressive painterly gestures in a chaotic and visually charged landscape. The work focuses on the representation of bodies in transformation - both organic and unfamiliar. The painting's surface is used to transform energies and refabricate the body with suggestions of contamination, connectivity and displacement. Fragmented bodies emerge in the play between abstraction and figuration, embedded in perpetual rootlessness, containing exile and otherness within themselves. These polymorphic figures confront sexual and cultural categorization, recasting the body as part imaginary and part construct. Exploring notions of the cyborg and the prosthetic, these figures exist between the human and post-human, biotechnological and sexualized bodies, and the fashion industry and anime.
