Plexus, 2016, is the largest painting in the series. These paintings in the series start from a purely abstract origin, often building on a base of collaged advertising paper. Fractured architectural references and abstract geometry, reminiscent of technological or virtual maps, combine to create an ambiguous, semi-abstract landscape.

Imagery is layered with the patterns of collaged advertising paper, industrial paint and varnish and finished with oil and acrylic. While retaining hints of representation woven into the surface, these abstractions have an undefined scale and perspective, and for me explore feelings of alienation, anonymity and absence in crowded virtual or physical spaces.
