About The Artwork

In this interior scene series, my aim was to disrupt the space to make the exit elusive, to play with the idea of shifting grounds where change is the only constant. 
The treatment of space through an odd perspective and an interplay of transparency and opacity open the door to the subterranean layers of the unconscious and memories. Interested in the psychological potential of interiors, I was particularly inspired by Matisse and Hodgkins paintings.

I create colourful dreamscapes inhabited by silhouettes of living creatures longing for an Elsewhere. My work evokes our endless quest for an elusive destination (be it a higher ground or a different emotional state) by contrasting movement and stillness, shadows and light, emotions and reality. One of my trademarks is the use of collaged elements, interwoven in complex layers of acrylics paint, to reflect the flotsam and jetsam of life. My colours are vivid: reflecting where I grew up (Caribbean and Morocco). Other key influences have been my travels and the works of Matisse, Frida Kahlo & Karin Mamma Anderson.
