Background to Present Work

The present work, grew out of an interest in the materiality of the paint itself and the manner in which it might disrupt a canvas, or other form of surface. This emanated from the work in Archives, the Sullied collection of work, which responded to ocean toxicity.  The realisation that the response to certain geographic places, (see my statement), was indeed a response to the materials that exist in such places, has been reflected within my own use of material, the paint itself. I have always had an addiction to paint, the smell, the viscosity, and its visceral quality. Therefore it is no surprise that I choose to focus on those materials as an experience , as well as understanding that geographic material can  also be  a similar experience that reinvents itself within  the act of painting.

The need to explore the phsicality of the material used, is a pathway for my own relationship with painting. The dexterity, flow and dispersion of paint and other tactile  fluids on a surface, is a notion to be interrogated. I look forward to this scenario and the subsequent  developments it might bring.
