About my artwork
My work addresses the link with everyday life (be it landscapes, people, transport or architecture) and the abstract expressive nature of todays society. The work itself is a realization of the subliminal, what we see everyday but not necessarily comprehend. The images themselves act as metaphorical windows allowing one to view the projection of anothers subconscious.
Whilst studying in America I began experimenting with ideas of emotion represented in an act of expression. If you concentrate too much on the visual side of painting you become too conscious of its inevitability. It takes a bit of fine tuning to create a desired aesthetic; Paint something, paint it out, paint something else, paint it out, and repeat This creates a wild new world of depth, movement and energy; my paintings are an expression of that notion.
Artists I like
Franz Kline, Motherwell, Frank Stella, Anthony Caro, Willem de Kooning, Dali, Still, Rothko
