Page 1 | Biography


Over the last few years my work has been moved further and further away from the traditional sense of painting as illusionistic surface toward the architecture by the movement of the viewer through both real and imaginary space. Trough the use of both common industrial or domestic materials and fabric not usually associated with art, I hope to create a fantastic world which expands the viewers sense of painterly abstraction to include an irony and whimsy which undermines their sense of "real" in everyday life.
In my installations, I use walls as both the barrier to perception and as a communicative mediator between the real and the imaginary. What first appears as walls that are part of the architecture of the site gives way, through a series carefully cropped peepholes and lenses, to an imaginary space.
Viewers are often confused by the various sight lines as to whether it exist in a "real" scale, as a miniature or as a photograph. My aim is to engage the viewer in a way that requires deliberation, reflection as well as physical participation and away from art which functions merely as decor or entertainment in a passing "quick read". My goal is ultimately to provide the viewer with a challenge to their sense of perceptual predictability in prosaic sight and to open the possibility of a wider and more complex conception of both the social world and private life.
