VIEW IN MY ROOM
Seventh painting in the Staircase series. The fearless dancing girl steps lightly through danger in a scene of rural decay. I paint because I have been moved by something. A view or vision that changed my physical state. It was a sense of beauty and foreboding that attracted me to this particular staircase when I was next to it. When I begin to paint, all I know is that I will paint the stairs. The characters and surreal additions present themselves throughout the process, allowing the subconscious mind to take over and adding them with out hesitation. There is a great deal of adding and subtracting paint to find the balance. Once I feel the balance is correct I can step back and piece together a narrative.

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.
