Based in Cardiff, UK.
My current work is an exploration into 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, and to question the status of painting today.
Analogue devices such as the canvas and the clear presence of the artist’s hand make direct reference to the computer screen and digital touch; this is the point at which my paintings begin to take shape. Compositional choices are informed by methods which ask the viewer to engage with and interrogate the marks made on the surface.
Multiple painterly techniques and a diverse matter of material are entwined to produce imagery that asks us to appreciate the real layers within painting in a time where we are confronted and consumed by the ruling of screens.
