Artist Statement

I paint about the relationships I have with people I've never met, what I feel for them and what I know about them intuitively from the perspective of another human. My interest is in the study of human nature, and I am careful not to criticise but to just show the things I have some kind of a reaction to.  I use loose marks and lines to map out things that are uncertain and moving, like time, lifespans and emotions.

Zooming in on an area of a pattern can be fascinating but the closer you go the more separated things get from the original context until it is linked back up with the whole thing, and when studying people I'm considering them as a part of a bigger thing. By painting someone I am wanting to show them with their whole, or by focusing on a moving crowd of I am wanting to catch a segment of everything-at-the-same-time-ness. I'm keen to keep the work within reach of that original context, which is what keeps it semi-figurative.
