Statement

My work is based around the ideas of interior world, attempting to reach the realms of the underworld and the unseen, such as hidden presence and invisible fullness that exists beneath or between the layers of what is perceptible. In this sense, I see my work as a place in which the invisible can be seen, the intangible can be touched, and the silence can be heard, exploring a boundary between the internal and external experiences. I work directly onto the canvas without reference to preliminary drawings or photographs. My initial marks are a starting point for a development of ideas from my interior world. Believing in the process rather than the end result, the painting is a sum of my achievements, failures and experiences. It becomes the sketchbook of abstracted images drawn from my physical, sensorial and psychological experiences in the real world.
