I am a multidisciplinary artist who creates large scale paintings and collages that are invested in mark making, full of colour and frenetic energy.
What is ‘IT’?
Process driven to abstraction
Spontaneous and procrastinated
Explosions of energy and senses working overtime
Thoughts bouncing around in an endless cycle of trying to find a space to rest only for it to fill up again. A push pull of distraction and hyperfocus.
Chaotic, cacophonous layers upon layers of information overload
Pushed down onto flattened surfaces where shifting sentiments, shapes and colour vie for attention and push against rough boundaries.
My work is in a state of endless shift, even when it comes to rest it still strains to expand as I try to contain it. To flat pack it and condense it. IT is kinetic energy. Cause and effect. Where one thing leads to another and another and another.
Create something, anything, stuff the rules and the fear of imperfection.
Sometimes literal sometimes, ambiguous. Ambiguously literal.
What is meant and what isn’t? It doesn’t really matter. Unless it does.
I print, I paint, I scrape and scrawl, I stitch, I stick. I create.
I tear it up. I throw stuff at it. I react. I remake. I recreate. IT IS the sum of ALL the parts
A constant pursuit of moments where I catch my breath. For a second.
Then it’s gone
Then I chase it again.
It’s compulsive and prolific
IT IS WHAT IT IS
IT is me
