23 APR-15 MAY
I predominately paint with oils and acrylics to try to capture the essence of a brief moment or idea through multiple perspectives both visually and emotionally. Two people could walk down the same road and have completely different experiences; my aim is to create artworks that visually construct fleeting memories that people can read and somehow identify empathetically with some aspect of the image and use this as a starting point to explore what’s happening within the image. I use references from found photos that have been lost or discarded, self-taken photos as well as images formed from my personal experiences.
With this series I explored studies of people I noticed maybe reentering some form of normality after being disconnected from their usual life or habits. Some of the people. The works are painted in acrylic and oil on reclaimed ply and canvas.
