Large artworks emanate light through expressive colour, line and gesture, representing familiar family scenes. Interactive qualities of the work arise through each viewer’s personal remembrances. The audience is encouraged to share their memories.
While daydreaming in my studio, my mind drifts to the spirits of people, both familiar and imagined. I find these faces in antique photographs, contemporary culture and in my own life as captured by my camera. I render these resonating characters after much research and reflection. Manipulating line, colour and scale, my artworks are generally portraits rendered in paint, collage, pastel and/or photography. See-through flesh, blinding outlines and emotive hues are layered to map out each figure and an impression of their psyche. In pondering and recreating people, my aim is to communicate innate psychological states, complex memories, nostalgic pauses and an empathetic understanding of others.
