Artist Statement

My practice transforms personal and seemingly ordinary everyday scenarios into compelling depictions through large oil paintings. I document observations of people I know in comfortable and inviting domestic or public interiors. Through a very specific approach to colour and lighting, I magnify the importance of these individuals' relationships formed with various spaces and consolidate fleeting moments made within them. Recognising the inviting, emotive and psychological atmosphere these spaces emit, which is then experienced by us. My subjects are often caught in unguarded moments, as we come across them almost as intruders into their world, with narratives hinted at but never fully told. A one-way relationship is created as we quietly observe them without interruption but in a close and comfortable context. This brings in the idea of the viewer as a voyeur.

The use of complementary colour palettes allows me to create vibrant atmospheres in my paintings. By veiling layers of colours and playing with translucency, light and colour synthesise as a watery luminosity. Wavering marks and organic shapes render as clothing and figurative poses; juxtaposed with qualities of abstraction seen in the surrounding space. These fleeting, everyday moments are captured and elevated in my large, light-filled, figurative paintings. This idea of representing figures living their everyday lives has been an evolving topic and a fundamental position in art, explored by painters including Pierre Bonnard, Edward Hopper, Caroline Walker and Gareth Cadwallader. I'm a contemporary representational painter and invigorate my imagery with colour palettes inspired by different sources including the neo-impressionist groups, the Nabis and Fauves.
