ARTIST STATEMENT

Painting is a a tool I use for channeling and expressing thoughts and feelings through. Usually when I paint, it is unpredictable, impulsive and impossible to plan. I always know where to start, but I do not know where to end. Each painting is entirely unique as each colour, mark, stroke and material represents a different thought which captures an experience. Every painting made has a story to be told.

Geometric shapes, colour and physical movement are some of the main elements I use in creating an artistic language to channel myself through. I am interested in relationships and roles, how one subject can influence another or create a new meaning when it is part of a collective. 

The symmetry found in platonic shape presents a reliable definition so I use these for sending conceptual messages to a viewer. My sculptural work begins with a concept which drives the materials I chose. Whether it be glass, steel, plastic or acrylic, the material has concepts which hints towards core topics I am addressing, such as transparency or honesty with the medium of clear glass.
