Artist\'s Statement  

\r\n

 

\r\n

At the core of my practice is an interest in the production, manipulation and interpretation of ‘an image’.  Sometimes found, sometimes sought specifically; often figurative but sometimes abstract. I rely on intuition to ‘compile’ disparate images into a painting until that moment when random elements create their own visual language.

\r\n

 

\r\n

My practice is as much about the journey as the finished ‘product’. The source of an image , why it resonates with me, its contribution to the work, and my role in the turning these images into paintings, is just as important as the overall aesthetic.

\r\n

 

\r\n

Early works turned to cinema, TV and print media as a source of imagery, specifically how these outlets interpret the masculine figure. More recently as someone who works for 8+ hours a day, 5 days a week at a computer, where Google is a significant source of procrastination, the internet has naturally crept into my practice.

\r\n

 

\r\n

While the internet as a realm where images are made, viewed and distributed has influenced much contemporary art, I am more excited by the potential of the digital world to influence my process for producing an image in the ‘real world’. What happens when the internet is merely a reference point for image making, rather than a canvas itself?
