Bio

I am interested in exploring the inner rooms of our mind that hold our darkest meditations. The social condition that dictates we only reveal what is deemed acceptable by society's unspoken dictum, is cross-examined and questioned. The uninhibited self and the esoteric self are represented by loose and free paintwork controlled by mediative thread-work. A feeling of safety and security are mentally and visually felt as areas of paintwork are covered and/or boxed in by thread. The uninhibited is left exposed and the esoteric hidden away. The simple square as a visual reference to the esoteric shadow self, is often found in my work. As a process driven artist, I enjoy experimenting with a combination of paint, ink and thread. My paintwork often embodies a fabric-like quality as it is removed from one surface to another and hand-stitched and/or adhered into place. The Vienna Secession has been a relevant movement to my own practice. By giving applied art equal standing and value to purely painted works has given me the freedom to experiment and not under-value my own works. By balancing both the pure paint element of my works and the almost hand-craft element of the my thread-work, I have endeavoured to give each component equal merit without one dominating the other. 'Decorative Function' - draws the viewer in I believe. Its isn't for its own sake. It is to move the observer deeper; to attempt to engage them with the very essence of the work.
