I explore people, space and time.
My art practice begun with reducing the amount of visual information needed to create the sense of a person. I originally represented this through white space on canvas but as I began to play with location and movement, I shifted to experiment with transparency. Using transparency provides a sculptural element which means a viewer can travel through the work as an installation, seeing figures from different angles and exploring the spaces between.
Through the intimate process of painting I get to know the people I am including in my art. Building connections and getting to know my subjects as an artist, is similar to the way that I work as an Art Therapist. These symbiotic processes guide my art practice.
The serendipitous painted drips express movement and process. The paintings are no longer whole memories, but fragments of the person in that space and time. The paintings become a trace.
