“I’m rather interested in visual relationships between all aspects of my work and how objects react differently to one another. Memories, timelessness and a sense of longing are key themes in my practice and I’m interested in raising questions of modem day life and conventional social systems. My practice aims to draw connections between painting and sculpture through subject matter and aesthetics, with colour and composition being key focuses. I often deal with comic or cliche subject matter and I’m particularly concerned with themes of history, romanticism, disillusionment and underlying notions of the post war era and political unrest.”
