I was commissioned to create a large painting based on a text installation in South London. I chose to use just one word from the original text that I felt had the most impact and placed it in an abstract framework.
Out of this project a new series of work has emerged that focuses on individual single words extracted from the narrative of this same public installation.
Due to a restless imagination and passion for new ideas I am always searching for new possibilities of expressing myself through my work.
The challenge of these aesthetic issues makes painting and the production of visual art for me, generally, an un-inhibiting and self-inspiring occupation.
