oil on canvas, 30 x 30 cm
The works portray fleeting moments, the expression of the subject offering us a glimpse into their innermost thoughts. The works can be interpreted as part conversations, part musings, into which the viewer is drawn willingly or not into the world of the subject, both in a voyeuristic and complicit way.
My work often exploits the conventions of cinematography by using close-ups, heavy cropping and saturated colour or strong lighting to create atmosphere; added to this is a gestural paint technique giving movement and immediacy to the image.
Current work examines emotion and perception through fictitious characters and de-contextualised dialogue. I am interested in exploring what happens to the image through the process of applying the paint.
