My practice situates itself between painting and image based media, to explore how painting could deal with photographic and filmic structures, constraints and modes of depiction and in broader terms, the contemporary.
Negating the brush strokes introduces principles of other image based media and allows a dialog to come into play with the painted image. The source images are altered: colours and forms mildly modified; cropping reframes compositions whilst further translations occur through the process of painting.
There is an effort made to relinquish control over narrative in order to empower the audience to relocate it within their own narrative and inform the works through their own experiences.
This practice inverts painting; borrowing systems from other media to allow an exploration into how we depict pictures today.
