My work focuses on the process of creation; I see myself as a material and colour based artist, looking at different ways to create apainting.
When considering materials, in particular wax, I want to experiment with the endless possibilities that wax can do. I want to understand its properties, I want to push it, I want to change it and I want to challenge it.
Colour can awakens different responses in the body; whether it an emotional response or a nostalgia to the remembrance of the past. The colours in my work are carefully chosen, to evoke either emotions or nostalgia that are different to each individual.
I’ve been exploring the field of expanded painting, and asking the question “What is a painting?”.Can my work still be considered a painting due to its use of pigment andsurface despite its 3D qualities.
