Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

oil on canvas
My recent work was inspired by thinking about Memory as a dynamic and creative process, that underpins who we are now and leads to our experience of the contemporary.
I am interested in how this is reflected in the process of making my paintings, through the transformation of an image, the editing and embellishing processes of interpretation.
The paintings reflect on autobiographical and emotional memory, considering themes of intimacy, unity and isolation in human relationships.
Taking as my source imagery anonymous found photographs, I am interested in the alchemical process of how meaning is altered when an image is re-contextualized and translated to paint.
The images show representations of people but they are not painted as portraits, rather as metaphors for the memory of a feeling.
