Artist’s statement:

My paintings are primarily concerned with the qualities of colour and surface and how these can be manipulated and ordered in ways that allude to aspects of the physical and transient nature of the world. The work may appear abstract, but places, objects and events will seep into decision-making and inform the direction that each work will take – references will often be about unseen physical structures (geological and archaeological) or transient atmospherics (weather and sounds).

I work mainly in encaustic, a medium that suits my rather impatient nature. Its opacity and malleability make it a forgiving medium that tolerates considerable surface change – acts of burying and excavating, cutting into and scraping away layers and nudging the component parts of a painting into visual coherence.
