Statement

I am a 24 year old painter from the North West of England,  who paints in an expressive and usually abstract manner work that incorporates a mixture of a personal vocabulary of symbols and more recognizable figurative elements. During the process of creating my work I often produce sketches before embarking on a painting but will often change aspects of an initial idea when I get an intuition of a different direction to take.

I have been included in a number of group exhibitions over the last two years including an exhibition in Manchester in 2008 to support a local Oxfam store, an exhibition in Macclesfield as part of the new Barnaby cultural festival, and most recently in an exhibition as part of the Liverpool Biannual 2010 (Independents strand) called ‘Life is Like This’ in conjunction with a disabled arts group called ‘Digital Production for Disabled People’.

Themes I have explored in my work up to this point include

  • Exploring how to express a range of emotions with paint either though the use of colour or composition.
  • Expressing dream like states of mind / mental landscapes though painting
  • Including symbols of nature (the sun and the moon for example) in my work
  • Influenced by certain occult images, for example a painting I did called ‘Baphomet’ (2010) is a representation of the pagan deity.

More recently I have become interested in the idea of incorporating aspects of contemporary street art into my work. I have also been experimenting more with expressive mark making, and how best to mix hardline and painterly elements of a painting to maximise a paintings impact. Additionally I also experiment with digital image creation and photo manipulation.
