Exhibition No. 2

Bio / Artist Statement

I try to paint a world that is slightly different from the one we live in. Since moving to the greenbelt, the natural forms and landscapes near me have become a source of fascination and pleasure, compelling me to try and capture them. But I want my imagery to move beyond the realm of classic landscape or still life so that the narrative harbours a degree of anarchy. Separating quirky or interesting images from their natural context and mixing them with reality does that.

Painting in oil gives me the freedom to follow where the painting leads, letting me adapt and combine various unrelated subjects so that the work can take on a life of its own. My ideas come to life in a way that can only be realized by putting paint on canvas.
