I have always been intrigued and influenced by patterns and imagery that emerge through a process of demolition and decay. In turn, my paintings have been informed subconsciously by an industrial vocabulary.
Painting on stretched canvas and grouping paintings together to form singular works enabled me to explore various juxtapositions of form and pattern. Aerial views of city streets, ancient writing and mosaic are a particular interest of mine. In my painting, I hope to excavate the structure of forms, pulling away their many layers to expose their fundamental elements and detritus.
In various works I have grouped paintings adjacent to one another in a mosaic-like motif exemplifying a mode inherent in the ancient traditions of Mediterranean and indigenous design; both are complex and simple and connote and connect the beautiful and the practical. Ancient ruins, decayed frescoes and modern graffiti have all influenced my work.
