My work is inspired by imagined and naive notions of unfamiliar places. I am interested in the personification of masses, through illustrating obscured groups of people, patterns and movements in order to depict how others would perceive them from afar. The imagery, often objects or landscapes rather than the corporeal, is a countenance of locality and history, as well as a confluence of manmade beauty and metaphysical conditions.
The process in my paintings is crucial to the amalgamation technique that is significant to both content and form. My primary technique involves distributing color and texture by pouring materials in sections to create a representational image that appears to be constantly moving and coalescing.
