My painting Still Life with Artichoke won the ING Purchase Prize in the
Discerning Eye Exhibition 2007, and is now part of ING’s permanent art collection.
I paint primarily from life. The drawings are derived from many sources - life, photographs, video stills...
My work is intensely figurative. Natural pattern is set alongside patterns made by hand. Abandonment, rituals and bearing witness are recurring themes.
I want the intense stillness of the images and the relationship between the objects to project both harmony and tension. The further tension between three-dimensional space and the flat surface, between spatial forms and linear description is a constant exploration.
