I am interested in curious objects and spaces that surprise me in my passage through the world. I am drawn to these objects initially because something unquantifiable about their form moves and captivates me. They are often man made objects or structures. They seem to take themselves seriously. I see an earnest dignity in the objects I select in which I find a dialogue between humour and pathos.

The process of making a painting involves making drawings through which I explore and take ownership of the image, internalising and gradually unravelling it. The objects depicted appear alien to their surroundings and posess a feeling of ‘otherwordliness.’ The real is explored and manipulated to create paintings seeming to be caught in a 'third space'- a world that is not quite 'the real' and not quite 'the imaginary'.


Drawing allows me to take ownership of the images, and takes the objects out of their already unfitting surroundings and exaggerates the humour of the context, or takes the objects or spaces into the realm of the imaginary.
