The idea of presenting several possibilities within one piece of work is a theme that runs throughout the different projects, enabling dreamlike narratives to come into existence. Semi fictional childhood fragments seep into the imagery. Creating art is a way of remoulding or controlling my reality, a kind reworking of memory. The exploration of relationship with people and place, is another constant driving force behind the layered images – connections that tie together and those that break apart.
An outdated language of science fiction and abstraction, as well as Utopian and Dystopian imagery are ever present in the different series. Unorthodox or humble materials are used to explore quite grand themes on the more formal surface of the canvas.
The individual within the great machine of society is another constant aspect – the idea of a cosmos, a universe, versus human habitation and fragility.
