I wanted the material of paint to represent a solidness, as solid as the city towerblocks. The thick oil paint helped me to build a modular solid material that continued up into the sky. Then I could investigate what happens between the space of the edges solid concrete, and the nothingness of air.
My cityscapes are inspired by my love - hate relationship with London and an unceasing desire to see the beauty in her. These scenes are painted are from memory of both everyday scenes and iconic sites.
