I am...
I am a british fine artist working on canvas in oils and mixed media from my farmhouse studio on the North Yorkshire Moors, and also South East London.
About my artwork
Influences are the concepts of Rene Magritte, Barbara Kruger; the painterly skill of Dali and The Pre- Raphaelites; the compositional and lyrical qualities of Ronald. B. Kitaj's work and most evidently, Sigmar Polke's brave, defiant lack of restraint expositionally and in the use of mixed media.
I explore a broad range of subject matters, most recently, allegorical and fairy
stories, executed in a fairly narrative, illustrative way. With a ‘nod’ to kitsch, and a ‘wink’ at irony, my works revel in the playful, disarming qualities that humour lends to an artwork. All this is done with a subtlety, and a sensitive regard for what, in essence, makes a really great artwork.
Utilising dated fabrics, salvaged items, household paints, innovative stencilling methods, traditional painting techniques and juxtaposing figuration and abstraction, I aim to produce exciting, opulent, sensitive and sensual paintings. I want to take the audience on a silent roller coaster ride of thematic tension, touching on historical, allegorical, fantastical narratives, pitched against the mundane and homogenous.
