Statement

Working in short series of paintings allows me to explore the transgressive power of desire as well as the beauty of spontaneity and process. Art history and personal history meld in each series with desire being a major motivation and reflection of this desire being apparent on the canvas. Craving for pleasure and possession is, for me, as much about spiritual interest as it is about human nature, with the struggle to square desire with fulfilment, both physical and spiritual, being at the core of artistic endeavour, faith and philosophy.
