My work focuses on themes of origins and belonging and it is this concern that has formed the basis of my practice. Whether collecting and working from found photographs or, in the case of the work submitted, working from selfies taken by Instagram users.
Through the act of painting I reclaim and invigorate, with added permanence and significance, a moment lost in the instant it occurred. Within the portraits there is an echo of that which is lost and sought, it speaks at times to our sense of nostalgia and at others to our desire to be seen, recognised and valued.
