My practice is, first and foremost, an exercise in mediation, using my enjoyment of painting to counter the allure of mass media and ensuing plethora of news, entertainment and social media. Secondly, it is an invitation to involve the viewer in an experience steeped in the act of looking and cross-comparison, in an attempt to comment on the dizzying and saturated availability of mass media, and the importance of recognising our entanglement with it.
In relation to mass media, I hope my paintings serve as reminders that we are sliding through drifts of unrelated, and unregulated, information more than ever before. By deploying a plurality in both style and approach, I attempt to visually narrate a journey that our eyes and minds take, as we sift our way through incoherent fragments of information online.
