Absence in a crowded space, 2015. This painting started from a purely abstract or gestural origin, building on a collaged base of advertising paper.    For me this work explore feelings of alienation, anonymity and absence in crowded virtual or physical spaces. 

 

The work is not pre-determined by imagery but is defined by a reactive working of the surface,  where the painted composition evolves over time. This piece is the most abstract of the series, hinting at horizontal and vertical frameworks which have an undefined scale and perspective.
