About The Artwork

I try to distil socio-political and philosophical meaning from mark-making through the dichotomy of unique and mass production, to represent discussions around truth/deceit, real/unreal and reality/perception. Thoughts around these discussions have become prominent in recent years particularly due to social media and the influencers on those platforms and the weight their presence carries in representing 'truth'. The visual relationship of the ‘real’ versus ‘unreal’ is integral to our self-questioning both in life and online. I explore this by blurring the line between these terms by using mixed media and digital printing. The particularity of each new iteration attempts to renew the delicate union between repetition and uniqueness. I explore this hinterland through strident artificial colours, gestural expressions, colour and digital printing. I view my work much like parents do their children, each work is birthed an individual; although one of billions that have come before, each one is unique.

My generation will be the first to observe the pixelated reflection of our entire existence online; digital addicts participating in virtual truths. An existence removed from the tactile experiences of my childhood in an isolated Scottish countryside. My practice explores this hinterland by deconstructing my relationship to my rural past, metropolis present and digital double. Although not directly referenced, my work sources influences from sci-fi film, social media, pop culture and artists such as: Warhol, Grosse, Guyton, LeWitt and Riley. I utilise visceral and tactile textures, intense fluorescence and acidic synthetics to explore the atypical and extraordinary in our lived context. I juxtapose paint with my use of printed media such as fabrics, tiles, rugs and most recently industrial metal prints. My approach to painting challenges perennial ideas of ego, authorship and originality. I take ownership over mass production by marking them with my own hand. The titles of my works such as ‘Unit 92449’ play on the bleak consumerism of barcodes and the seemingly infinite nature of production and consumption. My works can be found in private collections internationally in Monaco, Scotland, Czech Republic, Australia, United States, Italy, England and more.
