Painting: my work is concerned with tensions in painting: between surface and representations of space; between order and chaos; between chance and control; between stability and entropy; between presence and absence/allusion.
In photography, my concerns are to do with how people use space as a locus for communication, expression and empowerment, by intervening in public space.
