Winchester School of Art (MA Fine Art - Painting, 2007)

My work is an investigation into the properties of my chosen materials and the process of painting.

Artists who influence and inform my practice include; Ian Davenport, Jason Martin, Liam Gillick, Dan Flavin, Richard Wilson, Alexis Harding, Anish Kapoor and Robert Ryman.

Some of the processes used within my work are -

Use of poly-chromatic colour

Repetition of form

Harnessing of uncontrollable factors such as gravity

Harnessing of unpredictable characteristics of paint

Use of post-modern materials

Through my choice of materials and the use of gravity to ultimately make the mark, I am able to make abstract paintings that become self referential, questioning only themselves as artworks. Through subverting the viewer’s attention in this way, from seeking narrative that may not necessarily be there; the only conceivable narrative within my work becomes the materials and the process itself.
