Artist Statement

Emotional and contextual conflict is the underlying focus of most of my painting. As an artist I’m fascinated by a subtle sensation that I’ve come to recognise and regard as a visual paranoia of sorts. It can manifest itself in a wide range of subject matter, the common denominator being a sense of the uncanny or enigmatic. It could be a landscape that feels both uplifting and menacing at the same time, a micro facial expression that reveals an underlying darkness, or a posture that implies both invitation and rejection. I find these tensions compelling. The fiction and popular culture of my childhood and early teenage years continue to shape my interests to the present day. Whilst the result is a seemingly disparate range of subjects, in my own psyche these subjects are all connected and inhabit a single interior world.
