STATEMENT

My artwork often incorporates fractured sightlines, layers of muted colours and various discarded materials or destroyed artifacts to explore the poetry of the abstract, the aged and that which we misremember.

I want to celebrate and explore ambiguity. The ambiguity of thought, memory, truth and vision are areas of special interest as they provide a point of entry for the viewer. By taking the time to examine ambiguity in art, we can reconsider that which we may have assumed to be of little importance.
