While I am in the general category of painting, my studio practice embraces the expanded dimensional quality of sculpture. 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 perceptual qualites of painting to go beyond the canvas, to consider what is presumed about the surrounding site.
