The materials used in my work are deliberately minimal - a limited palette of oil on unprimed board. The board is lazer-cut and ready to hang,
My landscapes are painted away from the subject, where the starting point of a painting is a digital image. I then make numerous studies of the same or similar image, where the photographic image is gradually disregarded and the paintings become about pattern and tone. A sense of being many times removed from a place is evident in the final painting, although I aim to retain the glowing quality associated with a digital image.
The absence but reliance on an anonymous author of the initial image limits the amount of information that is translated to the viewer, allowing the viewer to construct their own narrative within my work.
