biography
“My paintings are an exploration of memory. They offer ‘glimpsed’ or half-remembered figures and faces – ‘re-imagined ancestors’ recovered from a personal archive of the forgotten.
My ideas come from material that accidentally comes to hand, an old photograph for example might chime or resonate. I then embark on a quest to unlock the essence of the image in a way that is somehow extra-visual. This journey of development and discovery can take anything from 5 days to 5 years until a kind of alchemy takes place and things seem to harmonise of their own accord in a way that can be very rewarding.
I paint in an expressionistic way using rags and sponges because the physical marks and textures are a fundamental element of what I am trying to achieve. The challenge for me though is to retain an economy of execution – an effortless effort.”
