Art Description

Painting: Ink on Paper.

I aim to depict movement and energy with paint. The works are titled after extinct plants, evoking a moment in time which we cannot return to. Initially, I was inspired by post-war action painting, but over time have developed my own vocabulary of textures, gestures, and techniques when applying paint. I hope the works speak to the complexities of contemporary life, with the calligraphic elements offering a nod to a more cosmopolitan, and hopefully more inclusive, art world today.
