Showed at the The Other Art Fair
After a trip to Thailand, in the chaos of the streets of Bangkok I felt relaxed, at home. I met a beautiful transgender boy, who had had a sex change so he could earn more money. A seemingly tragic situation, yet I couldnt help questioning my perspective, and its narrow view. A white tourist with enough money to travel and no real understanding of his life. I was educated yet nieve, it so easy to judge him. He was sure he was making a better life for himself.

Im a painter looking for space in the painting, looking for space within the world. To me space in our thinking offers opportunity for great change, to evolve. The space is manifested here as physical space within the painting. I cut and smash my paintings up and assembling organic grids from the pieces. I work at the edge of painting, disregarding the rules looking for another way through. Creating image from object process, using found timber discarded from building sites as canvas. I cover, apply colour, burn, use builders tools and my invented way of using them to make things that are paintings. The works are named toward the human experience of pleasure, pain, acts of courage or natural phenomena both great and disastrous that can open us up to our essential selves. An opportunity to be without ego, even if just for a moment.
