Stillness and vibrant activity co-exist to activate the spatial sensibilities in my paintings. Shifts between foreground and background draw the eye to rest within the painting's composition or to restlessly navigate its architecture. Between observation and abstraction, my imagery follows pathways to moments of focused attention and protected spaces. Using saturated or tonal colour within defined forms that often unfold as a series, my aim is to transmit a sense of resilience, wonder, and the desire for understanding through visual language.
Painting is a space for the unspoken to have a voice and a form, where the dismantling of linear history and time occurs. Circular time, the displacement of dominant power structures, the voices of the unheard and the unknown meet in imagined places; these considerations infuse and inform my work.
