Artist Statement

Faced with the digital abstraction of contemporary society, I respond with the abstraction of space in an exploration of the impact of contemporary technologies on painting. The mythos of classical art anchors my image making; contrasting the weight of historic architectural forms against efficient, reproducible technologies and the pleasure-seeking immediacy of our post-internet generation. Abstractions of artefacts are framed as objects of new idolisation. Refreshed and disembodied in paint, they simultaneously crave and mock a slower, simpler era. Through geometry and installation this painting is integrated into its environment, creating a dialogue between the objectified forms within the constraints of the canvas and a broader, implied field of space.

Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.
We commit to working in partnership with the Traditional Custodians and the broader First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community to support self-determination through economic and community development.
