About my work:
“The Photograph then becomes a bizarre medium, a new form of hallucination: false on the level of perception, true on the level of time: a temporal hallucination: a mad image, chafed by reality” Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida I am interested in old photographs and how, through their displacement, they invite a retelling of their story. Ideas are drawn from the fragility of memory and perception, the merging of real and illusion and the interaction between the two. By dismantling and rebuilding this imagery I create a new narrative. I find these old images especially interesting, as they hold romanticized notions. They all have their inconsistencies, which make them more intriguing. This element of chance is something I am trying to achieve. The process involved in constructing the paintings is important. When applying new layers I have to allow for mistakes to be made: obliterate an image, conceal and reveal layers, encourage detail to show through and play with chance.
I want to create a familiar yet disorientating scene. There is urgency in the paintings, as if they could fade, change or disappear. Paint as a medium creates a strangeness and many of my paintings hold an eerie feeling.
