Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

My work has always been interested in the spaces that are unused or forgotten and the traces where people have been. To me they invoke an air of mystery or foreboding. Be it the changing use of buildings, faded shop signs, graffiti on overlooked street furniture or places on the verge of being lost.

They are all things that I want to be recorded before being cleaned away. They are recordings of the streets as they used to be but also of today.

The paintings depict rich histories of a bygone era but also a sense of a sinister, eery and dystopian landscape. Ubiquitous shops once owned by generations of the same family now hang on the verge of being replaced with a less personal service, devoid of interaction and community. The shadows and light falling on the buildings give them a new perspective yet they remind you of the melancholy of the sun setting.

Their titles give away their topological identities to make them more personal and remembered. I want to give them meaning and a purpose, to be cared about.
