BREAKING

Drawing attention to the plight of the frog 

The return to an artistic practice in the period after a significant global event offers a unique perspective about the conditions in which it can exist. 

A new reality requiring a new method of production, where the complex nature of being is traced through process. 

To survive is to adapt; break free from those cosy patterns and evolve.

Everything that is still (hiding) in this immense treasure 

News articles provide an entry point for the eerie or uncanny, that the title should become its own mark within the painting as much as any brushstroke or pour. Language has significance. Every word or phrase I extract from each story is infused with the social and political concerns contained within it. 

There is a ritual in news reading where I find surprising comfort. I situate myself among the stories of the world while existing in my own.

She always wears a broad smile that masks quiet determination

I have been recognising patterns of anxiety and self doubt, creating a system of rules that allow me to break through moments of hesitation or conflict, and instead establish a foundation of action.

To be in control of something is to have influence over it, to have the power to establish the scope of possibility. I am the authority and every piece is a reflection of my internal battle for control.

A strange competitive edge creeps into the playground

Every piece is an individual, yet across the series there is an undeniable resemblance. Not every piece contains every element of the other, but there is a system of interconnected traits that are gradually expanding into a lineage.

I am challenging conformity and entertaining incoherence.

There is nothing I can't do.
