Artist's description:

Source material for my work includes the more obscure and choreographed settings of burlesque, cabaret or the circus - where people adopt theatrical roles and there’s the element of masquerade. The images that I work from have the potential to be mythical and often already display a certain level of artifice. Combining imagery or tropes from specific eras creates new, unrecognisable images that subvert the viewer’s expectations. I’m interested in exploring the possibilities and limitations of paint and how applying it in particular ways can call into question certain fundamental concepts such as space, time and identity.
