"The feel of a space has always been more interesting to me than the appearance. As a painter I'm compelled to explore the more abstract qualities of space and attempt to define a vision of physical, emotional, and cultural landscapes. Travel, architecture, consumption and pollution are all elements I use as I build my images. The collaboration of these themes form a landscape that viewers can project their own experiences onto. Walking down the street I find inspiration in layered and torn off concert posters, buffed graffiti, music coming out of pub windows, trains passing by, crumbly old brick buildings sitting next to modern glass and steel. I want to explore the meaning of these sensory cues and talk about where we fit into the big mess."
