I make works that explore the materials of painting, in all its
facets. With the application of process specific methodologies, works expose the
nature of painterly materials. They are surfaces that bridge the gap
between artwork and wall, through an exploration of the tension
between two-dimensional image and three-dimensional object. Gesture is
used as a device to amplify the tactility of the subject matter, be it
through the gesture of an object or paint itself. Informed by the
values of integrity surrounding minimalism and monochromatic painting,
works examine the relationship between support system, ground, surface
and colour. Deconstructing painting into its retrospective parts
enables me to challenge the preconceived notion of what a painting can
be.
