I am a painter and maker based in Kent, England. My work explores biography/portraiture, repetition, temporality, time and memories through the manipulation and invention of narrative.
In my most recent paintings I am working from postcards, colour plates and museum tweets as a source material, interacting with artworks to create a translation which returns the subject to an image rendered in paint.
I am concerned with the techniques and craftsmanship of familiar paintings and how the secondary image reproduced in print or digital media omits the artists’ labour.
By translating these images into paint I am able to explore the original artists’ creation to develop an intimate relationship with their painting process. My response in paint comes between the work and the viewer continuing a conversation with art history.
