Art Description

Painting: Oil, Ink, Spray Paint, Pastel on Paper.

Though an examination of gesture and language - processes of concealment and erasure inform a sense of ambiguity and play within my work.

The paintings are often a result of continued reworking and alteration, subsequently developing a palimpsestic, highly tactual quality. Spectral forms peek through the surface, evincing suggestions of the uncanny, while bold, vibrant marks tease at standardised notions of painterly bravado.

Through the demarcation of visual and literary references, I aim to create linear, highly personal narratives that explore sentiments of yearning, expectation and self-hood.

Symbolism is contextualised within the overt and indubitably overarching framework of art-historical narrative, and thus, the paintings operate analogously within an anatomy of subjects, signs and language.
