ARTISTS @ RIVERDALE gallery
"In painting , my work involves consideration of colour, mark-making , materiality, process and transformation. I start with found images that are relevant to my cultural experience and extrapolate from them. I believe that an artist’s work is contingent to the world around them but that painting can transcend contingency through intuitive and spontaneous process. Through transforming an image into an emotional, abstract work, the act of painting becomes the subject. Beyond that I hope that the paintings are celebrations of making and seeing for others."
