    How I Work...

    My aim in painting is to mindfully cheat a mannered, affected process - I don't have a specific outcome in mind but I like to arrive at unexpected results that are non-gestural and unemotional.

    To avoid the flabbiness of a completely open process, I use visual themes as tools for engagement with the painting (trumpets, weeds, etc.) - anchor-points from which I can build a structure within the painting and within the process - they provide me with a way of building form - a system of navigation through this open, painting process.

    This approach is particularly suited to the medium of oil paint - I enjoy its greasy nature and how I can still push and manipulate it, even several days after first application. By not drying, the paint surface remains fragile and open, providing great flexibility for reworking and correcting.
