My artistic interest has always been directed at the relationship between sculpture and painting and over the years, the two have somehow
become interdependent. Although my finished pieces are hung on the wall, I do not see them strictly as paintings. Painting involves the application of colour to a surface but when there is no surface to begin with, the piece is
The aspect of painting I have always struggled with is the tendency to erase movements and brush
strokes until eventually they become veiled and forgotten. By using a transparent material as my structure, canvas and paint, I am able to reveal every little step of my process, whether intentional or not. Each layer adds purpose and importance to the
one before, rather than trying to concealing it.
Because the material begins in liquid form, the most exciting part of my practice is its ability to continue moving and changing long after it has left my hand. There comes a
feeling of collaboration between myself and the medium, with both of us playing an equal role. I'm in control before the first drop of resin lands and then not again until each layer has transformed to a solid state. In between, I'm simply an assistant
while the material spreads and explores, hardening when it's found its place.
