Artist Statement

“The main driving force behind my work has its origins in cartoon-based imagery with its ubiquitous presence within popular culture, and my painterly translations of these into something idiosyncratic and significantly less defined.

Of particular relevance is the moment when a painting occupies the space of the interstice in content as well as in style. As such the painting becomes neither one nor the other, and clear-cut readings become problematic.

The work proposes a re-evaluation of our culturally and historically inherited attitudes and approaches towards painting.

As a means to this end my paintings intentionally lack any definite conclusions. Instead, the work places strong emphasis on subjective readings, giving an interchanging discourse between work and viewer prominence.”
