Artist Statement

0-IMG_2087

My work is rooted in an exploration of our relationship with where and how we live and the connections we make via the internet – the built environment and our virtual environs; using the physical and intangible elements of the work as a simile for each space. My practice is powered by my fascination with colour.

Many pieces start with drawing as a way of working out notions, particularly relationships between intangible concepts. These drawings, diagrams almost, develop form and become the initial ideas for structures, which are either physically built or painted on canvas.

To this end I fashion forms from recycled building materials that hold pockets of physical colour and project zones of reflected coloured light; and create canvases built from layers of painted pigment and printed marks.
