Artist Statement

 

Through a variety of painterly mediums emphasising material specificity, my paintings depict the

role of architecture as a metaphor rendered with the playful humour and irreverence of animation

and comics. The same imagery of doorways, windows, archways, trees, and shower heads repeat

across a variety of approaches—submitting themselves to the flat and fresh qualities of acrylic ink

on paper, or greasy, thick oil bar layered over brushy marks on stretched linen. They become

exercises in style and play—the internal logic defined by animated worlds inhabited by objects and

urban architecture. The titles often refer to the geographical location informing the subject—this

added dimension brings the external world in and hints at the political. The paintings show an

interest and preoccupation with the trauma and criticism of modernist urban planners like Robert

Moses in New York—with issues like traffic, public housing, and suburban flight. But the paintings

don’t look for criticality, just attempt to mine the power of these sources.
