On the floor, I am more at ease. I feel nearer, more part of the painting since I can walk around it, work from the four sides and be in it. I want to express my feelings rather than illustrate them. As long as something is said, it doesn't matter how the paint is put on.
The reason for colour is to block out the blank white paper/canvas: with oil colour, an undertone, spray paint etc. I aim to create texture and noise on the surface. I utilise digital/photography and more traditional methods of using canvas and wood with oil paint and spray paint. I love the smoothness of oil paint and the camera's clean, crisp images. They both capture amazing things within. My work aims to be delicate with subtle hints of loud and bold designs or colours.
In my work, I show emotion and capture a story from micro to macro. Detail. Life is fragile and delicate, and I want to show this in my career, even subtly.
Art has always interested me as you can visualise anything from your head for others to see and interpret. You can make statements and speak words through your art without talking. The historical side, especially romanticism, intrigues me. The knowledge and fascination that art had developed and evolved to what it is now. My work is part of a practice chain connected to Catherine Yass. As viewers look at my art, I’d like them to be in this trance of escaping reality. Reaching a dream, or memory, they feel different things about my artwork from how they first interpreted it and connected with it.
