Based in Cardiff, UK.
My work explores the practice of painting in the digital age, based on the combination and interweaving of digital and analogue practices. The work aims to challenge how abstract painting can be pursued when this narrative - as a consequence of technology - can be faked or non-assignable. The canvas - and the analog process of the painters’ hand - references the computer screen and the digital touch. Compositions are informed by methods that ask the viewer to engage with and question the marks made on the surface, utilising both manual and digital techniques. Multiple painterly techniques and a diverse matter of materials are entwined to produce imagery that asks us to appreciate the real layers within a painting in a time when we are confronted and consumed by the ruling of screens.
