My concerns in painting are as varied as the subject matter. I enjoy engaging with themes and ideas that are entirely different from each, often working on them simultaneously.
One project for example can be concerned with trying to understand bark structure and representing forms found within that, while alongside it another project will be exploring the possibilities of the shape of a section of dinosaur fossil that is of interest to me.
Whatever engages me I will paint or draw. Nature, literature, digital, film, photography, memory, altered states of consciousness. I find all can be worth spending time working with.
For me, the act of representation allows the practice of painting and drawing as a medium and technique. The combination of both is the style and this is what connects the work.
