Fifth painting in the Staircase series. The stair case is only ever used for it's practical purpose for slim portion of its existence, the rest of the time is a regimented sculpture standing boldly within its surroundings. A symbol of temporality and significance.. 

I start painting the staircase without to much thought to the final turn out, the surreal additions present themselves as ideas along the way, matching the essence and feel of the staircase. 

This time bringing a touch of the inner city to a classical setting. When travelling through cities you can't fail to see the graffiti blanketing the walls. This gives me a sense that the walls are alive. The graffiti is evidence of people with ideas, opinions and creativity. Whether you like it or not. It's there and brings the walls to life. Painted in acrylic and enamel on linen.

I have worked in various creative roles including tattoo artist, sign writer, set design, mural/ street artist and draw upon my experience in my current practice as a freelance painter. I am also experienced in sound and electronic music which comes into play when working with video and animation. ​ Although experimental, my core process lies with acrylics on un-primed linen. Teaming expressive marks and abstract ideas with pockets of graphic detail, painted with a minimal pallet mainly monochrome and two or three colours. Currently painting surreal figurative and architectural scenes using old images and metaphors to represent modern situations. It’s a dystopian social commentary, with a twist of macabre drollery. ​ Working in series allows me to explore ideas, themes and techniques. Although the subject varies there is a continuity in the tone. I enjoy creating a sense of drama within the work. This can be dialled back to a level of contained urgency and a sense of foreboding or unleashed, in full dramatic force. I paint because I have been affected by something, usually an image or a vision that has given me a physical sensation and altered my current state. It’s work you feel as well as view.
