My work draws inspiration from transitional states. Horizons appear that seem to determine the limit of what can be seen, expressed and which predetermine the unseen and the unexpressed positions beyond the horizon.
The works are far from ephemeral, although my process relies upon a reductive process of lost and found surfaces. They are currently an objectified pastiche and I often think of this process as an archaeological dig into the history of the image in question. Pieces are not completed but reprieved from further additions or subtractions. They become tactile objects where surface, image, colour and space compete for importance. Much of my process has its roots in the figurative imagery of my childhood. The topics of loss and memory are contained within nostalgic themes by default though not necessarily explicitly.
