My present art practice is focused on experiments with traditional painting and digital print based media combinations. My practice often explores the use of micro and macro combinations of imagery which are meticulously brought together using traditional art skills influenced by digital processes. The process of collecting, collating and archiving of cultural and historical material is always at the heart of my practice.
Living and working in Cornwall I am now exploring ideas around the environment and connections back to landscape as a carrier of meaning. I am presently researching and developing a large series of artworks based on Cornwall its history and its iconic places. The outcome is artworks that aim to bring together modernist ‘abstract’ traditions with a strong influence of our digital image age. The paintings and prints explore how we perceive landscape and how colour can be evocative of place. I am aiming to raise questions in the viewer that reflect ideas about our time while paying homage to the art traditions of the past.
