BA (Hons) Fine Art | Class of 2020

I present abstracted narratives, making the viewer question their ideas of portraiture. I am enamoured with the concept of capturing the edge of a scene. This is in order to reveal the role that context has in our lives and how it influences perceptions and perspectives.

I hope to encourage people to be more open-minded through my amalgamations of collage and paint, focusing upon similarities and juxtapositions existing in a large, absurd universe. Often, I partner these compositions with aspects of colour, in vibrant blocks or abstracted expressions.

Alongside collage, this allows a concept of doors and windows as a metaphor for the human condition and psyche. This is furthered through my practice of layering automatic drawings and writings too. This is an exploration of the unfathomable depth of contextual forces surrounding us with an idea of delving deeper whilst also being able to look out at a bigger picture.
