"Both my paintings featured in this exhibition discuss the topic of British New Towns. Gotta Catch Em’ All is an image constructed from film stills I pulled from a video promoting Livingston, the town I was brought up in. This painting communicates a darker perspective of control hinting at our susceptibility as children.

The Big Plan is based upon the origins of new towns in the UK displaying the committee involved in the creation of the first new towns around London and the larger than life map emphasising the lack of control."
