My current practice explores the notion of ‘landscape’ as a construct of cultural memory and is concerned with ideas regarding climate change and economic imperialism. Parallel to this is an interest in the phenomenological aspect of colour relationships and the mobility this can bring to perception of the work.
Drawing is also integral to my process; the drawn image within my paintings is continually filtered and reprocessed through different systems of colour, pattern and materials. Recently my practice has diversified and I have developed my drawing into large paper-cuts installations combining hand-cut with machine made processing through the use of Photoshop and Illustrator. I am fascinated by the tension created by juxtaposing these methods that questions notions of craft, skill and the role of the artist. This development has led me to an increasing awareness of the potentials offered by new technology to my work.
