About The Artwork

'Taped Battersea' has been influenced through the recent development of Battersea Power Station and how the space surrounding it is being adapted and changed to fill certain needs of the community. With the challenge of the space around the Power Station having to squeeze so much into it, why not challenge the subject of Battersea with in a painting. Using the space surrounding the Power Station and creating an opposite, almost like a reaction, the painting comes across as a more subtle and calmer environment which it will never feel like in reality.

The constant pushing and pulling of mediums has been a key element with in my paintings. This has allowed my exploration through cityscapes and the manipulation of light to be constantly moving forward and changing as though the cityscape does with every new building built or how the sun or moon does with every new day. With the subject of my paintings surrounding the manipulation of light in a cityscape and its modern architecture, it is the small details which help to build up my paintings. Through the use of photography and first-hand drawing I’ve been able to capture some of these developments with in London. The details that can be seen in my work, all come from the first-hand experience of observing the city and its architecture face to face. This has allowed myself the chance to experience what key details people notice or why certain people stop to discover an architectural feature that catches their attention. It is these developments that become noticeable in the drawings or fine detailed painting of architecture, especially with in my most recent works. My painting has taken the form of an abstracted yet somewhat romantic theme, with the colours in my paintings being very nostalgic. This is key to allowing this notion of silence and subtlety when they are being viewed. Along with this calming nature which is seen through the moon or sun surrounded by vibrant and deep colours, it is the dominant forms of the buildings and features that help to give presence in the paintings.
