Representing galleries


While I am in the general category of painting, my studio practice embraces the expanded dimensional quality of sculpture. This synthesis while remaining a traditional act of painting perceptually contests the concept of painting. I am interested in simultaneous mixed structures. 

The painted canvas starts by gathering references: historical, often art-historical, fashion or media documentation. There is a revival of ghosts and old warhorses; effective and corrupt political positions; extra-terrestrials; airbrushed apparitions of non-spaces and distortions of glamour.

The sculptural aspects then break down the conventions of painting to become a framing device for the surrounding space. This relationship with the surrounding unmarked space is an important aspect in the work. It forces the painting & the assumptions of viewing to be contested; and thinking.
