I am a painter primarily concerned with architectural forms and the urban landscape, our place within it and our affect upon it. I often use walking as a starting point for the work, literally tracking the images down by following predetermined paths. My work explores themes of home and belonging, transience, preservation, trace and lineage. I seek out places which might otherwise go unnoticed, or which might not be considered aesthetically beautiful in the traditional sense. I work mostly with acrylic paint on board, building layers of paint to create a facade which resembles the effects of printmaking processes. The facade, dramatic graphic forms and colours used in printmaking and advertising, ideas of Britishness and collective memory, home and belonging, and the connection between music and art all inform my practice.
