IMG_9731 2.jpg

Employing a vivid colour palette, my botanical, bodily landscapes consider the degradation and exploitation of nature. I allude to a ‘manipulated landscape’ of highly cultured flowers and genetically modified plants; reflecting the anthropogenic impact humans have on nature and contemporary cultures obsession with preserving youth and beauty. Using luminous, iridescent hues replicated from the natural world, I consider the hyper-intelligence and otherworldliness of nature; specifically botany and its relationship to the anthropomorphic. I aim to achieve an immersive and sensual visual language of ‘dreamlike fluorescence’ through colour-field techniques, highlighting nature's ethereal, fantastical, sublime qualities.

 

My work considers the formalisation of flora, its expansive visual language and symbolism. Translating micrographic botanical imagery on a large scale, I assimilate plant to body. I use an intuitive painting style that builds a malleable sense of space and form. Utilising processes of removal, soak staining, layering and stencilling, my botanical works embrace a sense of chance and accentuate paint’s musical and visceral qualities.

Influenced by Abstract Expressionism, my recent works, whilst representational, focus more so on colour relations, harmonious hues and simplified forms. I combine abstract elements with ordinary subject matter; reproducing otherworldly scenes filtered and processed through memory and imagination.
