My practice is concerned with the making of paintings, painting installation and text work. I make paintings on canvas, paper, board, and aluminium as well as more temporary works on plastic sheeting and tape. Text work has taken the form of a series of transcribed notebooks made in parallel with the activity of making paintings.
Central to my practice is an exploration of the processes associated with the material conditions of appearance at the surface of the painting, in particular, the mechanics of image formation through gesture, and perceptual movement in the experience of apprehending a painting.
In contrast to modernist requirements that a painting should not move, I understand painting as a particular temporal medium. I work with a notion of illusion, not only as spatial, but also as a temporal perceptual motion of ambiguity, in which image may be experienced as mobile or multiple.
