The Object in Painting
Mixed media installation
I am a conceptual painter and installation artist; interested in the process and nomination of art. Combining elements of traditional painting and sculpture with found objects to form new conversations and relationships between materials, viewer and space.
Capturing a variety of signatures that combine studio and gallery, I present objects and installations depicting sequences of actions that echo the relationship between painting and performance. Hovering between the unexpressed but intended and the unintentionally expressed.
Juxtaposing intentional composition with incidental form the installations equalise the hierarchy of art. Representing the process of making, and re-presenting that process to the viewer.
