My series of Bull paintings depicts human imagination. Each painting has a life of its own. You, as the viewer can feel and imagine whatever you want. I found myself outside the process of creating but on completion was inside the fantasy image.
My work is a constant journey of learning and exploring. Having lot's of fun!
My work deals with the environment and the climate crisis. Mankind's Anthropocentric viewpoint mistakenly negates nature’s intrinsic intelligence and in turn disregards alternative forms of communication. By separating ourselves from nature we have selfishly excused using resources ignorantly creating an imbalance which subsequently risks our own annihilation. Nature is complex and imbued with powers beyond our limited comprehension. My work takes a pause and re-evaluating dynamic forces we take for granted. The work seeks to highlight natural phenomena in nature and realms beyond what we can visually witness, but also to act as an ‘Intercessory’ allowing a voice to what we can not hear or understand particularly in regards to our impact on the planet , ecosystem and the race for our own survival. For me not only is the message important but also the means of delivery,Therefore I strive to use natural, recyclable materials as well as sustainable processes to compose my pieces.
I work with image, process, and a variety of materials in order to push the confines of art making to reinvent, rather than reproduce an image. Allowing an idea to emerge organically through curiosity, I manipulate the materials to create unexpected results that distort and redefine. I start with something expected, and end up with something mysterious, aiming for singular or unique outcomes within a defined image. Taking a painterly approach gives me the option for discovery by welcoming chance occurrences to create a new way to see a familiar object.
