Stillness and vibrant activity co-exist to activate the spatial sensibilities in my paintings. Shifts between foreground and background draw the eye to rest within the painting's composition or to restlessly navigate its architecture. Between observation and abstraction, my imagery follows pathways to moments of focused attention and protected spaces. Using saturated or tonal colour within defined forms that often unfold as a series, my aim is to transmit a sense of resilience, wonder, and the desire for understanding through visual language.
Painting is a space for material processes to continuously develop, carrying a voice that speaks to the dismantling of linear history and time. Circular time, the displacement of dominant power structures, the experiences of those who are unknown and unheard take form in imagined places within the painting's borders.
