"I work with the language of abstract art and digital technology in my observational paintings of people and places. Acknowledging and embracing my own subjective viewpoint, I aim to challenge the supposed objectivity of the photography. I’m fascinated by how the eye sees the world and the elusiveness of appearances. I’m seeking to represent this visual experience more vividly.
I used a CNC machine to cut out the forms for the MDF figures. The shapes produced, based on observational iPad drawings, were then painted and assembled into life-sized figures. The figures were an attempt to break free from the rectangular frame of the canvas, physically entering and disrupting the viewer’s space.
In this encounter, the simplicity of the life-sized figures forces us to acknowledge the nature of our own interactions with people in space, and our tendency to only notice the essential details of our surroundings."
