Pen on Paper
Oil on Linen
Like a mischievous demon that eludes definition, this painting deceives and plays with the eye. Inspired by the words of Heraclitus describing the constantly infinitely changing natural world, the painting explores the limits of a 2-dimensional canvas; using dynamic composition and monochromatic forms to create something that eternally shifts and slithers under the gaze. The paint reflects and refracts the light with the fluidity of water, within, out of and into the surface.
Bitumen and Acrylic on Canvas
Inspired by the writings of Italo Calvino, I set out to create a mystical interpretation of experiencing London as a mechanical beast. Taking a cross-section perspective through the layers of buildings and transport infrastructure; like the greasy internals of an oily engine, criss-crossed with streams of dark blurred movement illuminated only by white gleaming light, representing the contrast between the visible workings and invisible undercurrents within the urban hierarchy.
