“My work focuses on the emotive entity that can be examined in each painting. Each painting is created without direct preconception but with a compound memory of personal and cultural experiences. Each painting evokes an atmospheric space; structures, or lack thereof, that resonate an internal, emotional archetype. Interacting shapes and towering plinths form the scale of the environment which is interrupted with brush strokes and plaster rendering that define the emotional pace giving a live theatricality that aims to resonate with the viewer’s life journey.”
