DESCRIPTION

The selected works reflect my fascination with certain contemporary, figurative artworks, whether painted or photographic, which appear to actively engage with aspects of 'the cinematic' - its projective nature, image-flow, temporal montage, and even celebrity personae. Through a variety of perceptual and critical operations, these images and representations, while often insinuating an interpretive complication or disturbance, purposefully affect a re-dressing of the figural form through cinematic mediation, affectation, or intrusion. These works contain, through their stillness, a capacity for informing us about the strains of seduction, propaganda, and coercion lurking within contemporary moving images.
