‘The Simple Life – Decluttering, redefining, sea change, tree change, life change, reverting to basics and worshiping the Luddite.’

This body of work notes elements of a harmonious, calm intercourse through to chaotic, tangled conversations in hi key colour and texture in overload mode. To heighten the states of flux and turmoil, I attempt to create tension through the utilisation of diverse medium, intense colour and extreme quantities of product, it’s method of application haphazardly orchestrated. The stippled surface found amongst my works, is for me a reflection of us, humanity, as tiny specs often grouped but sometimes alone and isolated. The variation in my technique, subject and application of medium can sometimes surprise, this ongoing conversation with diversity results in driving my work in many directions and is due to my love of experimentation and pushing the medium to extremes.

“Technically, I am interested in making inks, sections of paper, aqua enamels and impasto paints more visceral and physical, with a body and texture of their own. The conscious choice of this diversity of medium within a single work is in anticipation that the contrasts will translate and heighten the ever changing. The work above is a response to numerous cases on Transgender Rights and bathroom facilities .It is my opinion that the majority of todays bathrooms are a bastion of segregation. They are like a filing system. And across the world many transgender people are banned from using bathrooms that align with their gender identity .Every day we are bombarded by pictograms and if nature calls we are guided by a person in pants or one in dress. Personally I do not own a dress and the last time I donned one was two decades ago under duress. The signage is not literal it only reveals how culture requires our gender to look and reveals the door it sees us walking through.”
