I am an artist and curator. My work is focused upon painting and drawing, informed by past styles and historical techniques. The influence of Baroque art and 20th-century modernism is reflected in my treatment of contemporary subject matter, which ranges from environmental issues to the politics of image-making and dissemination through digital media.
In my painting and drawing practice I work principally with oils, watercolours, graphite, silverpoint, pastels and mixed media on paper. I produce works in series in order to explore my subjects from multiple perspectives. In my work I draw upon historic styles and past modes of representation as a means of presenting and interpreting contemporary subject matter. This impulse stems, in part, from a belief in the sustainability of old styles. The visual references in my paintings and drawings are equally informed by my background in the field of art history.
