I make works that explore the materials of painting, in all its facets. With the application of process specific methodologies, works expose the nature of painterly materials. They are surfaces that bridge the gap between artwork and wall, through an exploration of the tension between two-dimensional image and three-dimensional object. Informed by the values of integrity surrounding minimalism and monochromatic painting, works examine the relationship between support system, ground, surface and colour. Deconstructing painting into its retrospective parts enables me to challenge the preconceived notion of what a painting can be.
