Containers for Tears
Containers for Tears (2018)


My studio practice is centered around experimentation and the invention of spaces. In the studio I make, test, play and push around materials, colour and forms. All these collages, 3-d objects and scraps of studio detritus along with numerous images of fashion, interiors and art end up scattered on the studio floor. I look out for intriguing visual conversations in this collection of stuff in order to prompt a new painting.
I like to work from above, laying my canvas on the floor or on a table so that I can walk around the canvas and work from all four sides. I work intuitively and with a sense of urgency in order to resist overthinking and allow for spontaneous changes.
Each painting is a conversation between myself and the evolving painting.
