I'm a painter beginning to work with film and photography as a new language to communicate.

My work seeks to illuminate the spaces in between the corporeal and the intuitive, to chase the shadow left by the perceived physical. I look for the glow, the underlying structure of things. I work from moments of heightened consciousness, remembered. And intimations of a wider reality, or one more intimate than the obvious. I look for these flashing sparks of waking amidst the malaise.

My work is as much about the physicality of paint and printed/moving image as it is about the illusion the image suggests. My work is about light - a search for light. It is a constant ebb and flow between the great tides of order and chaos. I straddle a world I long to know and one I love to inhabit.
