"This work is strongly grounded in two firm beliefs; the notion that representational painting is not ‘dead’, as many claim, and the idea that everything is, to some degree, very silly.

Playing with the idea of the representational, the works verge on the abstract using motifs and symbols such as vases, wine bottles, and plants. The motifs exist almost as figures in their own right giving these somewhat trivial objects anthropomorphic qualities. Making reference to the history of serious figurative painting, my work aims to invert this, making work for the ‘meme’ generation."
