Painting, Booth 412

The central idea behind my work is the abstract exploration the urban landscape: taking inspiration from local neighbourhoods and memory of travel. Soft edges, hard lines, organic shapes inform this idea of organic amongst the structured. These are places that are subject to change. This idea is always at the core of my work. Working in abstraction allows me to explore the idea of the intersection of organic and concrete through simple geometric shapes and the application of layers of paint and colour on the canvas. This exploration of the material, usually acrylics and assorted glazes and mediums but sometimes mixed media and collage, lets the work evolve in its own story.
