This time last year I moved from my home town of Clevedon, where I worked as a self employed photographer and artist alongside working in the family run restaurant. In May 2014 I moved to East Dulwich to live with my eldest sister, Angela and her three children, Owain, Sofia and Rosa.
One Year in 270 was exhibition to show my productivity and journey as an artist in the first year of being in the house. I used painting, not only as a way to escape not knowing where I am going, but to manage and understand the complexities I have been facing with digital photography and letting go of an image.
The "No Concept" series evolved by volunteering at CoolTan Arts, an arts and mental health charity based on the Walworth Road. I assisted in the art class every Tuesday afternoon. I was advised to disregard concept in my art. From this I painted immediate observations in the house without philosophy. This is a painting of the pattern on a sofa in my sister’s living room.
