My visual language is partly a response to the ‘Interim’ time in which we live....an interim between consensus and an individualised ‘on-demand’ culture, and a world existing in the interim between limitless leisure choices provided by technology, and a disorientating multitude of ‘truths’ provided by the internet. I’m currently interested in incorporating organic elements into my work – exploring nature’s resilience in the face of the injury which humankind has inadvertently caused. I am developing work where organic forms are in harmony (or perhaps hybridised) with hard-edged geometric elements – the meeting points between nature and the smart technology needed to achieve our sustainability goals. I utilise carpentry off-cuts in my paintings – using separate panels and being open to change during the making process is an important creative strategy for me and helps keep possibilities open whilst reducing the need to use new materials in the work. The FarmED exhibition offers an opportunity to develop and show this work in an appropriate environment, where I hope some of the themes I am exploring might spark conversations and ideas.
