Primarily a figurative painter the main concerns of my practice revolve around social observation. Intrinsically fascinated by people’s interactions within different environments I am constantly searching for moments to record through paint. I question what is modern life and how can I best encapsulate that. This I do through my own interactions wherever that may be.
The core of my work is driven by my love of portraiture. My paintings may not necessarily be read as conventional portraiture but more on the periphery. Through my application of paint I experiment with moments constantly questioning whether it is best to retain the context or not. With recent work I am finding cross-hatchings of abstraction creeping in whilst still observing and retaining elements of realism. The process of making, for me, is as important as the outcome.
Whilst the threads of my work muse over societal issues focusing on psychology, this constant questioning has left me speculating, whether my work cross-examines anthropology and/or empathy and space.
I have a BA Fine Art First Class Hons from University of Kent and am currently studying MFA Fine Art at UAL due to graduate July 2017.
